The limits of Optical Charactor Recognitation
OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition. It is a method by which an image containing characters are transformed into text.
OCR is useful in all industries, and even with governmental agencies. Consider that the US Postal Service uses OCR to recognize zip codes. OCR is used by many large firms to increase their services turnover by using the converted text to run analysis and sorting programs on it, thereby speeding up their workload completion.
A recent study shows that OCR can have as low an accuracy as 77.12%. This almost defeats the purpose of OCR because the user has to manually re-check and manually correct the errors. Another study by Villanova University concluded that in order to increase an OCR method’s accuracy, the conversion rate would have to decrease. Therefore, a more accurate conversion would be slower to complete, and a fast conversion would be more inaccurate.
