Enhance Your Application's Functionality With MICR OCR

Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) is a technology used to verify the origin of paper documents, specifically checks. There is special ink that is sensitive to magnetic fields. This ink is used in printing certain characters on documents like a check.

How does it work? The ink contains iron oxide and the plane of the paper is magnetized, allowing MICR readers to pick up the special characters that often look like a barcode at the bottom of the check. It offers legitimacy to the document so that banks know the check is authentic.
