labels, low cost for supplies (labels), ease of
configuration and simplicity in use.

Label Printer Configuration:

Check IN only requires the LabelWriter printer
drivers and does not use the label printing
Some insight we gained while installing
and testing LabelWriter were:
- DO NOT connect the USB cable until the installation onscreen instructions request that the USB cable be connected.
- If you are using the LabelWriter
to print labels, you must ALWAYS
make your default printer.

LabelWriter uses a USB connection with your
computer. USB printer configurations are generally
very simple and easy to install. School
was tested only using 's USB connection.

printer(s) are required to print reports?
can be printed to any standard (laser or inkjet)
printer using 8.5" x 11" paper.
Can we print
reports to a network printer?
printing to an attached network printer should function
properly, provided your computer and network printer
are properly configured. Check with your network
administrator for proper configuration settings.
When printing reports, a dialog box will appear
allowing you to select your report printer.
