OCR / Indexing
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a method by which scanned printed material on paper is converted into digital texts. This is a very sensitive process and the accuracy depends upon the skills of the personnel, technology and the print quality of the source matter. Even with the highest grade technology you don’t get total accuracy. Some human input is required to make up for the short comings. This is called OCR cleanup work. Here misread characters are corrected, missing information from the original document is filled in and other such mistakes are rectified to achieve almost total accuracy.
OCR is proving to be a great boon for companies which have a huge amount of manual data entry work to be done. OCR converts printed forms, documents etc. into digital copies which are easily editable. It also ensures highly accurate reproduction of company books, journals, forms etc. in digital form.
