The questioned document examiner as well as the rest of the citizenry have been thrust into the computer age—whether we like it or not. As consumers, we are on the receiving end of the computer. The machine juggles payrolls, adjusts charge accounts, makes reservations, and performs other essential services for us.

Document examiners, however, are now being asked to examine materials involved in civil and criminal matters involving computers and computer-generated documents.
