Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corp has developed a new generation of optical character recognition equipment claimed to be capable of reading with 90% accuracy, text which contains drawings, graphs and photographs as well: identified letters are converted to and stored as character codes, while graphs are converted to graphic commands and other types of data are stored as image symbols, and the thing takes about one minute to read an A4 page of 300 characters, five times faster than current OCR sustems; it will be out in mid-year, coming with a local net interface.
