Indexing Solutions with Barcode Recognition Barcode Recognition Video
Barcode recognition is the most efficient way to capture index data printed on documents. Some documents already have key information in barcode format on them. In many cases adding a barcode to a document is as simple as changing or adding a font. Adding barcodes to new documents is preferable as all the index data is on the document at the time it is created and in a format that can be read with near 100% accuracy.
As an alternative to placing barcodes on the individual documents, it is possible to print out a barcode cover page and place it on the file before it is scanned. The SimpleCoversheet application was designed to make this easy by providing a simple interface for selecting index values and printing a standard coversheet that contains these values in barcode format.
Barcode recognition can also be useful when you have documents with a variable number of pages that will all receive the same index values. If it is not possible to generate an indexed coversheet for these at the time they are created, a generic barcode coversheet can be used to separate the scanned images into multi-page files, one for each document. A second process can then be used to index these images one file at a time instead of one page at a time, greatly increasing throughput.

Many enhancements have been made to the barcode recognition features in SimpleIndex 7. The default barcode recognition engine (Pegasus) has been upgraded to the latest technology. We have also added a second barcode engine (DTK) that provides support for additional barcode formats, affordable 2D recognition and server-based processing, and improved accuracy in certain configurations. Voting technology combines the results from both engines, boosting accuracy by up to 20% over either engine alone.
The Pegasus 2D Barcode Engine, formerly sold as an add-on, is now included with SimpleIndex Full. This feature adds support for several 2D barcode formats, and removes the limit on processing speed that the 1D engine has.
Template and Dictionary matching for barcodes now allows partial matching, making it easy to parse multiple index field values from a single barcode.
Checksum validation has also added to ensure the recognized barcode value is correct.
Finally, an Enhanced processing mode has been added which performs multiple reads and image enhancements to extract hard-to-read barcodes.
