Optical character recognition (optical character reader, OCR) is the conversion of images of typed or printed text into machine-encoded text from a scanned banknotes, checks, tickets, etc.
OCR software often "pre-processes" images to improve the chances of successful recognition. Techniques include De-skew, Despeckle, Binarisation, Normalise aspect ratio and scale, and so on.
2. Character recognition
OCR algorithm produces a ranked list of candidate characters.
OCR accuracy can be increased if the output is constrained by a lexicon – a list of words that are allowed to occur in a document.
4. Forcing better input
Special fonts like MICR fonts, with precisely specified sizing, spacing, and distinctive character shapes, allow a higher accuracy rate during transcription. These should be used in handling checks and tickets with MICR.
