29 Jan OTR – What can it substitute?
OCR also known as Optical Character Recognition has played an important role in transforming raw data into digital files. Once transformed, this information would be accessible and shareable to more people. The technology Character Recognition itself comes in different types of varieties. From picture to character, speech to text and even vice-versa.
With the same function that a human eye usually carries, OCR recognizes the shapes of the different alphabets, numbers and characters that are found inside of a picture. Unlike our eyes which could get tired, an OCR based technology will never lose its power. Today OCR has been developed for broad applications. It ranges from automatic data entry for business informations to even an assistive technology for blind and visually impaired users.
So what is the difference between our OTR and the usual OCR?
OCR as we all know can be applied to a lot of applications as long as it is in the form of a picture. Different with the usual OCR, OTR can only be applied to paper timecards. Our application is only limited towards one type of usage, and that is why we are just the perfect choice for you. Especially if you are looking to convert and digitize your paper timesheets to a digital file.
