Since recognition is never 100% accurate, validation processes such as balancing must be used to supplement these engines to get to this goal. Bank Check Verification—Specs 12/18/2018 22
  23. 23. Copyright © 2018, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. | • It is important to use the seeded BI Publisher format for the check format as a starting point and the MICR gauge to send the first draft to the bank for feedback • The bank will provide feedback on specific layout areas like signature placement, amount placement box, name of supplier etc. • It is important to understand that the test checks are sent to a scanner and an OCR Check is done and the better the OCR the better the success rate • The OCR scanners at the bank are very powerful and intelligent but have some constraints on placement of various check elements Bank Check Verification 12/18/2018 23
