OCR Software Can Be Taught To Read Fonts

The newest version of the company's Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software allows engineers to train it to read a wide variety of fonts and symbols, such as OCR A and B and SEMI font. With the NI OCR software, engineers can access low-level parameters with an easy-to-use training interface, adding application programming flexibility and high-speed identification to PC-based vision systems. The NI OCR technology is included with the Vision Builder for Automated Inspection, an interactive environment that configures, benchmarks and deploys machine vision applications without programming. Manufacturing test engineers can also integrate the vision software with other components (e.g., motion control and data acquisition), with the Vision Development Module, and with a variety of programming environments, such as LabVIEW, Microsoft Visual Basic and C/C++.
