ICR – Intelligent Character Recognition
Data capture of handwritten text and numbers
ICR is ideal for data capture of more complex information including handwritten text and numbers.

With ICR, intelligent rules and checks are applied to each character so that data can be captured automatically. Only those characters that have not passed a ‘threshold of confidence’ will need to be checked by an operator.

As a robust network-ready reader, the PS1000 scanner is typically used for large volume, real-time data capture processing and imaging exercises such as:

  • census projects
  • examination processing
  • voter registration
  • complex ballot counts
