The examples in Figure 16 and Figure 17 demonstrate how system errors have a cascading effect, resulting in multiple errors being introduced into a single hypothesis string. The alignment examples shown are, by design, easy to understand and are easily derived. In practice, multiple errors frequently occur in a single hypothesis string resulting in many different possible alignments. The Scoring Package analyzes each candidate alignment and chooses the one that assesses the least amount of penalty. The Scoring Package does this in a consistent and logical way so that, when given the same hypothesis string and reference string, the Scoring Package will always generate the same alignment. As multiple errors are introduced into the hypothesis string, it becomes increasingly more difficult for the Scoring Package to unambiguously distinguish insertion errors from substitutions errors. This distinction often requires human inspection which would compromise the degree to which the Scoring Package is automated. Therefore, the Scoring Package does not distinguish substitution errors from insertion errors and lumps them together into a single category called false positives. 4 5 6 7 8 4 7 7 8 0 0 1 0 0 Isolated Field Image
