 Optical character recognition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Optical character recognition (using optical techniques such as mirrors and lenses) and digital character recognition (using scanners and computer algorithms) were originally considered separate fields.
Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, involves computer software designed to translate images of typewritten text (usually captured by a scanner) into machine-editable text, or to translate pictures of characters into a standard encoding scheme representing them in (ASCII or Unicode).
Recognition of cursive text is an active area of research, with recognition rates even lower than that of hand-printed text.

 Postgraduate Medicine: Digital Doc: Optical mark recognition
It can be contrasted with optical character recognition (see Digital Doc, March 1998, page 37), which turns images of laser-printed characters into machine-readable characters, and intelligent character recognition, which translates handwritten characters into machine-readable characters.
Accuracy of most OMR systems approaches 100%, versus about 98% for optical character recognition and 95% for intelligent character recognition.
Then use the OMR software to design a template defining where on the form the software should look for answers and how the bubbles or boxes should be grouped logically for data entry (eg, with six rows of four check-boxes, each of the six rows would be a separate entry).

 MICR - Magnetic Ink Character Recognition -- Cognitronics Ltd
M I C R (pronounced myker) is a recognition system that uses special ink and characters to achieve a secure, high-speed method of reading characters using magnetic variations in their shape and not their optical image.
In addition MICR offers very high recognition rates as it is not limited by the normal problems of OCR (Optical Character Recognition).
MICR is not restricted to E13B and financial institutions overseas use a font known as CMC7 where the same magnetic principles are used.

OCR can be used for various different purposes, for instance it maybe that a client is performing a large backfile conversion project of engineering documents and wishes to index their drawings according to a description, drawing number and issue.
Also for zone OCR operations of this type we would never recommend attempting to OCR less than 2 data fields, the reason being is that it is far easier to verify mistakes when using 2 fields, as a mistake in 1 field easily falls through the net.
