OCR (Optical character recognition/optical character reader) is the mechanical or electronic conversion of images of typed, handwritten or printed text into machine-encoded text, whether from a scanned document, a photo of a document or other. In other words, it is a method of digitising printed texts so that they can be electronically edited, searched, stored more compactly, displayed on-line and it is used in machine processes such as cognitive computing and key data. It is used as a form of information entry from printed paper data records, whether invoices, bank statements, computerised receipts, or any suitable documentation.
