What is OCR?
OCR, or optical character recognition, is software designed to automatically recognize printed text using optical algorithms. The great thing about OCR software is that the technology used to recognize text characters has reached such advanced levels that it is now nearly perfect. Using OCR, you can make any document text searchable and extract text from scanned forms.
Using OCR for semi-fixed forms
A semi-fixed form is a document whose structure does not vary very much from one copy to another. An example of a semi-fixed form is an invoice, which is generally uniform in structure, though the information within it varies, and the length and format can differ slightly. OCR software is ideal for processing semi-fixed forms because it can use the uniform, predictable structure, to automate the entire task.
