Abstract:

The feasibility was investigated of using optical scanning techniques for converting typewritten material which is created aboard ships to suitable media for input to data processing systems. The accuracy of such conversion was also investigated. The results of analyses and reading tests indicated that material prepared and read under similar conditions with same type machine that was used in the reading test would have over-all unreadable and document error rates of 42 and 3.03, respectively for one pass of the documents through the machine, or 33 and 3.9 respectively for two passes.
