Abstract:

The objective of this program was to determine the potential capabilities of the Link Reading Technique toward fulfilling the requirements of a reading machine which could be appropriately referred to as A Universal Print Reader. Emphasis was placed on development of paper handling capability as well as multi-font recog nition, since commercially available equipment in both areas falls far short of universal status. Results indicated that reliable multi-font recognition can be realized and compatible paper handling mechanisms can be made which are tolerant of a reasonable amount of input document degradation such as is common with field-pre pared documents. This report contains a detailed description of the operating principles of a complete page reading system, along with a number of techniques for extending the performance of this machine.
