Prime Vision’s Context Reco recognition technology promises to narrow the gap between human and machine recognition by delivering higher read rates. The technology employs patented features to recognize individual hand-written or machine-printed characters. Context Reco complements HYCR technology and looks at features contextually. This could be the relative position and size of the character in relation to the line or features of neighboring characters or patterns. The method mimics the way a human would rationalize the character or word by capturing the information visually while applying intelligence to make sense of the received image. In Context Reco character recognition and contextual relationship are not sequential processes but coordinated and mutually beneficial methods that have a positive impact on the reading outcome.
