The mechanical or electronic conversion of images of typed, handwritten or printed text into machine-encoded text is referred to optical character recognition (OCR). It is widely used as a form of data entry from printed paper data records, whether passport documents, invoices, bank statements, or any other document. OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision. Early optical character recognition may be traced to technologies involving telegraphy and creating reading devices for the blind. This book, a valuable tool for professionals working in the character recognition field and for all interested in the subject, presents advances in character recognition and covers inclusive range of topics on numerous aspects of character recognition.
