We offer a perspective on the performance of current OCR systems by illustrating and explaining actual OCR errors made by three commercial devices. After discussing briefly the character recognition abilities of humans and computers, we present illustrated examples of recognition errors. The top level of our taxonomy of the causes of errors consists of… (More)

SIMSCRIPT III is a programming language for discrete-event simulation. It is a major extension of its predecessor, SIMSCRIPT II.5, providing full support for object-oriented programming and modular software development.
FindSounds.com is the first Web search engine for sound effects. In addition to keyword-based retrieval of audio files, FindSounds.com provides a " sounds-like search " for content-based retrieval. FindSounds Palette is a unique software program enabling local and remote audio files to be searched by content and at multiple speeds.
A critical aspect of many simulation studies is the modeling of resources. A general typology, or multidimensional categorization, is proposed for characterizing resources. Such a characterization, or resource " profile, " serves as a " meta–model " from which relevant properties may be identified and incorporated into a resource model. The typology is… (More)
A new object-oriented version of the SIMSCRIPTprogramming language is under development.Incorporating modules and object classes, the newlanguage is designed for modular, object-orientedsimulation programming.
