What is OCR? Optical character recognition/reader (OCR) converts images of text, handwritten, or printed text into machine text. The images can be a scanned document or a photo containing text.

OCR can be defined to a sub class of computer vision and similar to computer vision OCR technology does not actually see the words or text rather it sees pixels that represent a letter or a word.

OCR can be applied to many use cases and be embedded into many processes. As an example TonkaBI use OCR for vehicle license plate reading which is embedded into our Ai vehicle analysis process. A widely used use case for OCR is data entry. OCR can dramatically reduce data entry time and effort while ensuring consistent data entry quality is maintained.
