Understanding Optical Character Recognition

Stating that OCR is most effective when used to complement linear and 2D symbols, this paper details how Optical Character Recognition (OCR) differs from barcode technology. It provides clear description of the history of OCR technology and explains the advantages and disadvantages of both data capture methodologies, OCR and barcode technology. A brief overview of some of the simplest and most reliable, common OCR fonts such as OCR-A, OCR-B, MICR E-13B, MICR CMC-7, and SEMI M12 is also highlighted. Figures illustrating examples of OCR used in a variety of applications, OCR template interface, and OCR configuration functions are included. The paper details how OCR continues to be used in broad range of application environments, from high-end machine vision to more compact, easier-to-integrate solutions.
