ECMA-11

Alphanumeric character set OCR-B for optical recognition

3rd edition, March 1976

This Standard ECMA-11 defines the nominal shapes of the printed images of the individual characters of the OCR-B font. It does not define characteristics of the print quality or tolerances in character positioning, which are covered elsewhere – (see Standards ECMA-15, ECMA-18, ECMA-21, ECMA-30).

The OCR-B font whilst primarily intended for use in Optical Character Recognition, is also highly suitable for general purposes.
