Optical character recognition

Optical character recognition is the process of automatically converting handwritten or typed text into computer-encoded text. By doing so, paper-based documents can be stored in a computer for easier access via electronic searches. Digitization in this manner also allows documents to be accessed from any terminal that can access the server on which the electronic versions are stored. The use of optical character recognition eliminates the need to manually retype documents into a computer.
