Document Processing Definition/Meaning:
processing (reading, sorting, etc.) of documents that are generally readable
people and machines, e.g. bank checks, vouchers from credit card transactions,
and accounts from public utilities. In addition to the printed information for
human interpretation, there is also some encoding that is machine-readable and
may be in an OCR or MICR font.
The documents are frequently referred to as turnaround documents since the
person receiving them "turns them around" and returns them to the system to
complete a transaction.
