 for optical character recognition
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Optical Character Recognition
      (OCR, sometimes /oh'k*/) Recognition of printed or
     written characters by computer.  Each page of text is
     converted to a digital using a scanner and OCR is then
     applied to this image to produce a text file.  This involves
     complex image processing algorithms and rarely achieves
     100% accuracy so manual proof reading is recommended.
