How is OCR-A and OCR-B Used?
OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is used for several purposes where automated systems need a standard character shape defined to
properly decode and identify text without use of barcodes. OCR was developed in the 1960's and 1970's to help banks, credit card
companies, and other similar companies process documents. The two primary standards are OCR-A and OCR-B. OCR-A is generally easier
for scanning equipment to decode and OCR-B is generally easier for a person to read. Unlike barcodes, OCR does not require start, stop,
or checksum characters, which makes it very easy to use.
