SAP: OCR Printing

Optical Character Recognition is another way of encoding information in machine readable format and is often used with bar codes. An advantage over a bar code symbology is that it is also human readable. In order to print information containing OCR fonts from an SAPĀ® Solution, the font has to be available in the printer and the SAP device type must address it. With the Lexmark Bar Code Card and the Optra Bar Code SIMM options, scalable and bitmap OCR-A and OCR-B fonts are supported.
