Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) is the line of numbers (ten numeric and four special symbols) on a document that relates a transaction to a specific customer's account.

MICR: An acronym for Magnetic Ink Character Recognition. MICR is a recognition technology based on characters printed with magnetic ink or toner and processed by being magnetised and sensed magnetically. MICR characters are printed information on documents so that the codeline information can be captured by magnetic Size: 1MB. Magnetic Ink Character Recognition in by the American Bankers Association (ABA). This EB system uses specially shaped characters, which are printed on the bottom of bank documents. Soon after, almost all checks produced in the United States and many other nations, were magnetically encoded with EB characters.
INFORMATION PROCESSING — MAGNETIC INK CHARACTER RECOGNITION — PRINT SPECIFICATIONS (First Revision) Section 1 — Font E 13 B Section 1of this International Standard specifies the shapes, dimensions and tolerancesfor the ten digits and four special symbols to be printed in magnetic ink’ and used for the purposes of character recognition. A magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) line is a line of characters printed in a 5/8 inch high band (the MICR clear band) at the bottom of a check or deposit slip. The characters are printed with a magnetic ink or toner using the EB MICR font. Download Magnetic Ink Character Recognition for Windows to recognize and read the encoded line of data printed at the bottom of each check. Magnetic ink is an extremely useful type of ink that makes processing personal checks fast, secure and accurate. It typically contains iron oxide particles that are magnetized and can be ready using specialized equipment that is compatible with Magnetic Ink Character Recognition .
Magnetic Ink Character Recognition is used specifically for the purpose of printing bank checks on blank stock. As opposed to the regular printing solutions you would get using a toner, the toner used for MICR has a high iron oxide content. Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR), as defined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), is the common machine language specification for the paper-based payment transfer system. It consists of magnetic ink printed characters of a special design which can be recognized by high speed magnetic recognition equipment. The short form for Magnetic Ink Character Recognition is MICR, which is a recognition technology based on characters printed with magnetic ink or toner and processed by being magnetized and sensed magnetically. MICR characters are printed information on documents so that the code line information can be captured by magnetic recognition. ANSI X refines and supersedes ANS X, which was titled “American National Standard Print Specifications for Magnetic Ink Character Recognition.” Today, ANSI X helps banks with automatic document handling for financial institution processing.
