On January 26, 2015, The US President Barack Obama spoke on the occasion of India’s 66th Republic Day. He dwelled upon how India & the US can partner and how this partnership can become the strongest force in the Universe in eliminating terrorism and poverty in the world. He spoke about how the world’s largest democracy and the world’s oldest democracy can forge together a partnership that will make the world a much more connected world. And speaking about how their data can be relayed through satellites to the cell phones of the farmers in India to increase their yields and boost incomes. Also referred to the initiative to provide each Indian with a bank A/c.
Can all this be done without data in an electronic form? Can all this be executed with having data contained and trapped in paper alone? No, it can’t. Data needs to be captured in electronic systems so that they can be transmitted across nations and economies so that the benefits can be shared and accessed. Mr Obama spoke about the partnership, and that is how things are going to move ahead in the near and not-too-distant future. What you have is not the only thing that you serve coz’ you have a partner who provides you what you don’t have.
This also applies to the data digitization and the document scanning industry. Using various techniques which combine the manual and the mechanical method, electronic data capture services capture data from scanned images of paper documents and convert them into electronic records.
- Indexing using data entry:
Indexing services refer to tagging of data using some pre-defined parameters to facilitate access and retrieval. The same is primarily done by manual data entry operators who open the scanned documents and go through the same and tag it.
- Optical Character Recognition(OCR) techniques
There are character recognition techniques which recognise handwritten text and convert the same into data that can then be appended to various files in the form of records. So, for instance, a University has received 1lac forms for its various courses, it needs to sort those forms out and segregate them according to the courses applied for. Also, it needs to capture some fields like category, sex, and age of candidates, etc. So, it scans the documents and feeds it into OCR software which captures the data and stores it into client database.
- OCR zoning/clipping
It’s an advanced variant of Character recognition that’s used to obtain news clippings from articles or individual paragraphs from written texts etc. These are again used a lot of litigation support mechanism where for instance, a particular paragraph is to be captured from a decree awarded by a magistrate, etc.
