A2iA AddressReader accurately recognizes all types of handwritten words and characters from a variety of envelope-types to maximize mail-sorting accuracy and efficiency within incoming- and out-going mail, internal- and postal-mail operations.
A2iA AddressReader locates handwritten address blocks on envelopes and flat mail, and segments it into lines and words. A2iA's advanced recognition technology then uses a custom dictionary or national postal database (such as the U.S. Postal Service and German Deutsche Post) to accurately read those words using IWR. A2iA AddressReader then provides the recognition results with confidence scores. Used for internal and external purposes, its versatility allows for the reading of department or employee names as well as post office boxes. It can be used for sorting outgoing mail within pre-sort operations that handle a combination of handwritten and machine-printed mail.
