What is OCR?
OCR, or optical character recognition, has eliminated the need to process hundreds of paper files manually. Instead of tedious, time-consuming, and often error-prone work, you can leave data entry to machines, while focusing on more complex tasks. OCR recognizes text characters in scanned documents, making them text-searchable instantly. This means that you simply need to scan a document, and the information inside it is ready for you to work with.
How is OCR used with structured forms?
OCR is used to process structured forms once they have been scanned. OCR works as a component of form processing software. Once the software identifies data fields with text to be extracted, OCR is able to identify the text characters within those fields, and gather the relevant information. This way, instead of processing hundreds of forms manually, such repetitive tasks can be performed by machine.
