In the 1976-1978 timeframe my high school leased a desktop reader made
by H-P which would read either mark-sense or punched cards, and output
serial data. It was hooked up in tandem with an ASR33 Teletype for
access to a TOPS-10 timesharing system (BOCES NCODE on Long Island).

It made a goose like "honk" each time it read a card.
