What kinds of text can optical character recognition software process? Is it limited to any specific fonts?
In general, OCR software can recognize most standard fonts with high accuracy. In the past, when OCR was first developed, there were only a few available fonts that were designed to be machine-readable. Now, however, OCR can recognize most printed text. The main limitation of OCR is that it does not read handwritten text.
