Meaning of OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(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.
