What is character recognition?

As its name suggests, character recognition software recognizes text characters in electronic files, usually scanned documents that are saved as images and are not immediately text-searchable. Character recognition software is also known as optical character recognition or OCR, because it uses to optical properties of text to identify the characters.

How is it used in image processing?

Character recognition enhances the processing of scanned images by allowing you to automatically recognize and extract text content from different data fields. For example, when you scan a form and use document imaging software to process it, OCR allows you to transfer information directly from the document to an electronic database.
