The science behind optical character recognition (OCR) is not entirely new. Look at the numbers on the bottom of. . Look at the numbers on the bottom of one of your bank checks; these are characters that a machine can read. Recall also the devices we've all examined at ALA conferences that can scan and verbalize a printed page for the blind. We'll look at this methodology mainly from a viewpoint of desktop publishing, and we'll explore some ideas for applying these OCR techniques to library situations.

Optical character recognition (OCR) is the most prominent and successful example of pattern recognition to date. This book is not about OCR per se but about the different kinds of errors OCR systems make and how to correct them using context. It is therefore a specialized book. This book was published in 1999 and is therefore a little bit outdated.

Optical character recognition. Supplements to Computers in libraries ;, 37. Classifications. by Harold C. Ogg. Published 1992 by Meckler in Westport, CT. Written in English.

This is a practical guide to OCR in the library environment. It answers practical questions such as: what is OCR?; what practical applications does it have in the library?; what equipment and resources are needed to run it?; and what are the cost implications? Not only do the authors address these issues, they also tackle issues concerning building OCRD into the full range of library systems. Special focus is placed on extensions to OCR-related technology, including an analysis of the uses of desktop publishing in tandem with OCR. Overall the emphasis of the book is on the practical. Although OCR is an involved discipline requiring some aptitude and knowledge from the user, this text should make the whole technology more accessible to a broad range of readers, even those with little prior knowledge in the field.
