Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a CodeREADr data capture tool that allows a device’s camera to read and convert text from the image on the screen to typed characters. In other words, your device’s camera can record a targeted text string in that view.
For example, users can scan a box with an item’s name on it. Then, they can record that item name without typing it manually. This feature is useful for long strings of characters that need to be scanned but do not have a barcode image attached. Also, you can validate any data captured by the OCR-enabled camera. Then, use just as you would with a scanned barcode value.
