OCR/ICR – Optical Character Recognition

Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic conversion of scanned images of handwritten, typewritten, or printed text into machine-encoded text. (Wikipedia).
In computer science, intelligent character recognition (ICR) is an advanced optical character recognition (OCR) or, more specifically, a handwriting recognition system that allows fonts and different styles of handwriting to be learned by a computer during processing to improve accuracy and recognition levels. (Wikipedia)
NOTE: Keep in mind that OCR/ICR doesn't substitute human revision of critical data. Use it as a tool to speed up your data entry process.
