How Does Font Recognition Software Work?
Font recognition software, generally known as optical character recognition or OCR, uses the optical properties of text characters to identify them in a scanned document. The earliest OCR tools were only able to recognize a few specific fonts, and could not generalize the technology to text as a whole. However, a series of technological advances have made font recognition possible for virtually any text.
How Accurate is Font Recognition?
Font recognition software has become extremely accurate. For most types of printed text, OCR software can reach almost perfect accuracy, depending on the quality of the image. Even for poor quality images, OCR software can de-skew and de-speckle the document, making it possible to read. Font recognition has made even more dramatic advances with the development of ICR, which can recognize handwritten text.
