Optical Character Recognition




<text> (OCR, sometimes /oh'k*/) Recognition of printed or written characters by computer.

Each page of text is converted to a digital using a scanner and OCR is then applied to this image to produce a text file.

This involves complex image processing algorithms and rarely achieves 100% accuracy so manual proof reading is recommended.
