How Scanning Barcode Works
Scanning barcode is closely related to OCR, or optical character recognition, in which a computer program identifies individual text characters within a scanned image. With barcode recognition, the image automatically recognized is a series of bars rather than words, and this allows the user to identify information about the scanned item. Barcodes are commonly used in retail to identify products, but they also have applications in other industries.
Other Uses of OCR besides Scanning Barcode
In addition to scanning barcode, there are many related applications of this type of software. OCR can identify text in many different contexts, and can be used to create databases of documents for storage, or to extract text from standard forms, such as bank checks. There is also a variation of OCR called ICR, or intelligent character recognition, which can recognize handwriting. Taken together, these technologies help automate many tedious, repetitive data entry processes.
