With MyScript, shorten, simplify and streamline the processing of your forms.
MyScript, a powerful OCR (Online Character Recognition) technology to shorten, simplify and streamline the processing of all your forms.
Automation of form processing is a key factor in improving many business processes and document based business transactions. Automatic extraction of written content for integration into company databases and information workflows is now recognized as key for success in a lot of industries.
While many forms are created digitally and filled out using a keyboard, for instance via server or web applications, many business processes still rely on paper forms that have to be filled out by hand. For the latter the handwritten information is generally either manually keyed in or scanned and processed using OCR/ICR software (Optical Character Recognition/Intelligent Character Recognition), implying numerous time consuming and often costly steps.
Today, more and more devices enable real-time recording of handwriting as digital ink, with solutions like digital pen and paper or mobile touch-screen devices such as Internet Tablets. This brings more flexibility and efficiency to the data capture and form processing stages, as the handwritten information is readily available and can be sent out digitally for further use without any additional scanning.
In order to transform the handwriting into digital text, ready for use in databases and information processing applications, Vision Objects offers a set of handwriting recognition-based solutions. They cover the recognition of isolated boxed characters to freeform unconstrained handwritten text. They cover a large spectrum of languages, from English, German, French, to Chinese, Japanese, Korean, on to Arabic and many others. Vision Objects proposes handwriting recognition technology for integration into form processing solutions via its MyScript Builder Software Development Kit, and also offers ready-to-go software building blocks that can be quickly and easily integrated into stand-alone or server applications.
In addition to its best-in-class accuracy, MyScript provides many valuable tools and features that empower forms processing solutions: several recognition candidates for each handwritten character or word, recognition scores for each candidate, possibility to validate recognition candidates through application specific lexicons, reject flags that show anomalies in the handwriting like corrections, cross-out, overlapping characters, spelling errors, and more.
Using Vision Objects’ MyScript, time and cost to capture data are dramatically reduced.
Compared to traditional OCR/ICR technology on the market that is based on noisy images of documents, the superior MyScript technology is based on clean vectorized ink, and allows our customers to push the frontiers of document processing to less and less structured documents. Using MyScript, our customers have built solutions ranging from the reliable processing of free text fields in forms to the processing of totally unstructured notes, for instance as part of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solutions and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions. For the latter, after a customer meeting, sales people using digital pens and our MyScript solution have their handwritten notes available directly in their CRM system without any further work, thereby making their handwritten notes readable and searchable.
As with MyScript empowered forms processing solutions: no re-keying! Write information once and have it available in all relevant databases and software applications.
