What is OCR?
OCR stands for optical character recognition. Optical character recognition technology makes it possible to automatically recognize text in scanned documents, so that users can work with such files as easily as they can with files created on a computer. OCR uses the outlines of letters and numbers to identify text content. While OCR is limited to printed text and cannot recognize handwriting, it is extremely effective for this category of text.
What determines the quality of OCR?
The primary determinant of OCR quality is accuracy. A good OCR program requires a high level of accuracy, so that users can be confident that they can effectively work with the text in a scanned document. Another important feature of OCR technology is volume capability. For industrial purposes, it is often necessary to process large volumes of documents, and so it is essential to be able to handle large numbers of files quickly.
