Too Long; Didn't Read
Optical character recognition (OCR) converts any kind of image containing written text into machine-readable text data. OCR allows you to quickly and automatically digitize a document without the need for manual data entry. The output of OCR is further used for electronic document editing, and compact data storage and forms the basis for cognitive computing, machine translation and text-to-speech technologies. With the growing interest in OCR and Machine Learning, more and more business owners are looking for ways to apply this combination to optimize their business processes.
