OCR Handwriting Recognition Now Used to Process & Interpret UK Royal Mail

Tuesday 4 November 2003 16:06 CET | News

Lockheed Martin has elected to incorporate the A2iA FieldReader handwriting recognition engine into the United Kingdom Address Interpretation program for Royal Mail.

A2iA recognizes whole words - whether cursive or machine print - rather than character-by-character. The technology is also flexible enough to efficiently develop solutions for international languages and versions. The Address Interpretation program provides a complete system solution for both the automated and manual assignment of machine print and handwritten mail. It is currently operational at 72 Royal Mail centers in the United Kingdom. Lockheed Martins handwritten automatic recognition system has achieved high recognition rates. Known for its high accuracy and adaptability, A2iA FieldReader will be integrated into Lockheed Martin?s system to further improve its automated handwritten recognition performance. The integration of A2iA?s advanced recognition technology will allow Royal Mail to process mail more efficiently and reduce overall costs. A2iA offers a flexible robust system that is easily adaptable for other languages and currently has 17 international language versions.
