Electronic data capture from critical business documents can reduce the cost of a scanning project, improve accuracy, and add value to any electronic document management system.
Bay Area Records uses leading-edge technology including barcode recognition, optical character recognition and intelligent character recognition software. This enables us to scan and convert handwritten, typed or printed documents into digital files that can be easily and quickly searched, displayed, updated and securely archived.
What is Barcode Recognition Software?
Barcode recognition software streamlines the document indexing process by automatically capturing, reading, and processing index data printed on documents. It allows large batches of documents to be efficiently scanned, processed and sorted while dramatically reducing filing errors.
What is Optical Character Recognition?
Optical character recognition (OCR) software works with your scanner to convert printed characters into digital text, allowing you to search for or edit your document in a word processing program. It offers many benefits including:
- No more re-typing
- Fast, keyword-specific digital searches
- Edit text
- Improved accessibility for visually impaired users
What is Intelligent Character Recognition?
Intelligent character recognition is an advanced form of OCR that recognizes handwriting and enables a computer to learn different fonts and styles of handwriting.
