Archiving and Scanning Duplication at Oxford Duplication Centre

Optical Character Recognition in Oxfordshire UK


Optical character recognition or optical character reader is the electronic or mechanical conversion of images of typed, handwritten or printed text into machine-encoded text, whether from a scanned document, a photo of a document, a scene-photo or from subtitle text superimposed on an image.

We digitise and scan materials using specialist equipment that can capture images in high resolution per page.  Once captured  OCR (optical character recognition) is applied to distinguish printed or handwritten text characters inside digital images of physical documents, such as a scanned paper document. The basic process of OCR involves examining the text of a document and translating the characters into code that can be used for data processing.

When processing a scanned digital file with OCR technology, highly useful documents are created as a result which can allow businesses to have easier and quicker access to streams of data in a digital format.
