How do RAF software solutions work?

RAF’s patented omni-font OCR engine takes an individual character and determines what the character is within a certain confidence. RAF’s approach to dynamic character examination utilizes sophisticated algorithms that analyze each perspective character to accurately interpret data versus applying simpler and less accurate recognition techniques. It returns alternative characters in ambiguous cases. The software is scalable and versatile. For example, it can work with multiple cameras to capture images on any side of a box.
