Abstract : VITIES OF THE Air Force Foreign Technology Division Machine Translation Facilities. This effort was to evaluate existing optical character recognition capabilities toward the total requirement of a Russian Typeset Print Reader. In this research, four pages (4) of original scientific Russian text were used as the data base. The contractor demonstrated that the scanning and conversion of Russian text by OCR is feasible and potentially economical. In summary the results of the analysis of scanning the four samples indicates that specializing the software towards this particular application and providing methods to enable automatic format and font recognition will be most effective in reducing the total error rate. An ultimate total error rate of less than .5% appears achievable.
