  The information processing system according to each embodiment of the present invention as described above can be applied to a form process in a financial institution, for example. Hereinafter, with reference to FIG. 1, a basic configuration common to each embodiment of the present invention will be described assuming that each embodiment of the present invention is applied to form processing in a financial institution.

  FIG. 1 is an explanatory diagram showing a basic configuration of an information processing system according to an embodiment of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 1, the information processing system according to the embodiment of the present invention is connected to a network 12, a scanner 18 and a window terminal 20 arranged in a sales office of a financial institution, and the sales office via the network 12. A collection / delivery server 16, a currency exchange server 30, and an entry terminal 40.

(network)
The network 12 is a wired or wireless transmission path for information transmitted from a device connected to the network 12. For example, the network 12 may include a public line network such as the Internet, a telephone line network, a satellite communication network, various LANs (Local Area Network) including Ethernet (registered trademark), a WAN (Wide Area Network), and the like. Further, the network 12 may include a dedicated line network such as an IP-VPN (Internet Protocol-Virtual Private Network).

(Scanner)
The scanner 18 obtains a form image by optically reading a form prepared in a sales store and filled with transaction details by a customer. Examples of financial institution forms include a transfer request form, a transfer request form, a deposit request form, and a withdrawal request form. Hereinafter, a specific example of the form configuration will be described with reference to FIG.

  FIG. 2 is an explanatory diagram showing a specific example of a form (transfer request form). As shown in FIG. 2, the form includes a “transfer destination” entry field, a “recipient” entry field, an “amount” entry field, a “client” entry field, and the like. For example, the “Remittance” entry field includes a transfer financial institution name and a branch name entry field, and the “Recipient” entry field includes a recipient name and a recipient account number entry field. The “Requester” entry field includes a requester name entry field.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 2, a frame line and a character frame are formed in each entry column of the form. However, the form image after being read by the scanner 18 includes the frame line and the character frame of each entry column. Instead, the characters entered in the form by the customer may be included. Further, the configuration of the form shown in FIG. 2 is merely an example, and a form having another configuration can be applied to the embodiment of the present invention.

(Window terminal)
The window terminal 20 is a terminal used by an operator of a sales store. The window terminal 20 receives a form image from the scanner 18 and automatically recognizes characters included in the form image. The window terminal 20 transmits the form image and the character recognition result to the collection / delivery server 16 in the central center via the network 12. The window terminal 20 may transmit, as a form image, an entire form image and a cut-out image obtained by cutting out an area corresponding to each entry field of the form. For example, the window terminal 20 may transmit an entire image of the form shown in FIG. 2 and an account number cut-out image obtained by cutting out an area 52 corresponding to the account number entry column shown in FIG.

(Collection and distribution server)
The collection / delivery server 16 relays communication between the sales office and the devices in the centralized center. For example, the collection / delivery server 16 receives the form image and the character recognition result transmitted from the window terminal 20 and transmits the form image and the character recognition result to the exchange server 30.

(Exchange server)
The exchange server 30 is an information processing apparatus that generates an entry screen to be displayed on the entry terminal 40 based on a form image and a character recognition result received from the collection and distribution server 16. For example, the exchange server 30 generates an entry screen by arranging the cut-out images corresponding to the entry fields of the form and the recognition results of the characters written in the entry fields side by side. Hereinafter, the entry screen will be described more specifically with reference to FIG.

  FIG. 3 is an explanatory diagram showing a specific example of the entry screen. As shown in FIG. 3, on the entry screen, the cut-out image corresponding to each entry column of the form and the recognition result of the characters described in each entry column are arranged side by side. For example, as shown in FIG. 3, an account number recognition result 64 is arranged below the account number cutout image 62.

(Entry terminal)
The entry terminal 40 is a terminal used for an operator to perform a form entry operation. The entry terminal 40 displays an entry screen received from the exchange server 30, and supports a confirmation operation or data input by an operator. When the transaction content is confirmed through entry work by the operator, the entry terminal 40 transmits the confirmed transaction content to the host computer of the financial institution. Then, a transaction is executed by the host computer.

(background)
In the entry screen described with reference to FIG. 3, the horizontal positions of the numbers corresponding to the same digit are substantially the same in the account number cut-out image 62 and the account number recognition result 64. Therefore, the operator can accurately and efficiently confirm whether the account number recognition result is correct on the entry screen.

  However, in consideration of the case where the account number “0” whose upper digit is “0” is omitted and the account number is left-justified in the account number entry column of the form, A 0 correction processing function for inserting data indicating “0” into the upper digits of the recognition result is implemented. When this zero correction process is executed, there has been a concern that the account number cut-out image 62 on the entry screen and the account number recognition result 64 may be misaligned in the horizontal position of the number corresponding to the same digit. .

  For example, when the 4-digit “0” is omitted in the account number entry field and “123” is left-justified, the window terminal 20 displays 4 before “123”, which is the account number recognition data. Data (correction data) indicating “0” for the digit is inserted. In this case, as shown in FIG. 4, in the entry number cut image 62 and the account number recognition result 64 on the entry screen, the position “3” corresponding to the first place and “2” corresponding to the tenth place. ", And each position of" 1 "corresponding to the hundreds position. As a result, there was a concern that the operator's work efficiency and work accuracy on the entry screen would be reduced.

  Then, it came to create each embodiment of this invention focusing on the said situation. According to each embodiment of the present invention, it is possible to reduce the deviation of the position of the character corresponding to the same digit in the cutout image of the form and the recognition result of the character, and to improve the operator's work efficiency and work accuracy. Hereinafter, each embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail. The window terminal and the exchange server according to each embodiment are distinguished from each other by adding a number corresponding to the embodiment to the end of the reference numerals of the window terminal and the exchange server according to each embodiment.

  The position correction unit 324 has a function of correcting the position of characters in the form image. For example, when “0” is inserted in the front side of the account number recognition result, the position correction unit 324 sets the character (number) in the cut image of the account number on the side opposite to the front side in which “0” is inserted. Move to a certain rear side. Hereinafter, this point will be specifically described with reference to FIGS.

  FIG. 8 is an explanatory diagram showing an example of a region cut out as an account number cut-out image in a form. As shown in FIG. 8, the width from the end of the account number cutout area 52 to the entry frame is a, the width of the entry frame for one digit is b, and the width between the entry frames is c. Further, as shown in the upper diagram of FIG. 9, it is assumed that “0” for four digits is omitted and the account number “123” is left-justified in the account number entry column.

  In this case, the position correction unit 324 moves the characters in the cut image of the account number by four digits backward based on the information on the correction digit number. Specifically, as illustrated in the lower diagram of FIG. 9, the position correction unit 324 cuts out a region corresponding to “4b + 4c” on the rear side of the cut image of the account number, and converts the characters in the cut image of the account number to “4b + 4c”. Is moved to the rear side for a length corresponding to "." With this configuration, the characters that have been left-justified in the cut-out image of the account number are corrected to the right-justified character arrangement.

  The screen generation unit 326 generates an entry screen in which cut-out images and character recognition results corresponding to the entry fields of the form are arranged side by side. In particular, as shown in FIG. 10, the screen generation unit 326 recognizes the cut-out image 62 that has been position-corrected by the position correction unit 324 and the recognition result of the character in which “0” has been inserted. 64 are arranged side by side.

  Here, since “0” is inserted in the character recognition result 64, the account number is displayed right-justified, but the character position in the cut image 62 of the account number is also moved to the rear side in conjunction with the zero correction. Since it is moved, the deviation of the horizontal position of the character corresponding to the same digit is reduced. Further, by moving the position of the character in the account number cut-out image 62 by a length corresponding to the number of correction digits, as shown in FIG. 10, the account number cut-out image 62 and the account number recognition result 64 on the entry screen. Thus, the horizontal positions of the numbers corresponding to the same digit can be matched. Therefore, according to the first embodiment of the present invention, the operator's work efficiency and work accuracy on the entry screen can be improved.

  Note that the screen generation unit 326 may appropriately reduce or enlarge each clipped image when placing the clipped image corresponding to each entry column of the form on the entry screen. In this case, assuming that the reduction or enlargement magnification is k, on the entry screen, the characters in the cut image of the account number are moved by a length corresponding to “k (4b + 4c)”.

  In addition to the position correction based on the number of correction digits described in the first embodiment, the position correction unit 325 performs position correction based on the amount of character position bias. That is, the position correction unit 325 corrects the center position of the character to the reference position of the character frame, for example, by moving the position of the character in the cut image of the account number according to the amount of bias for the character. Hereinafter, a more specific description will be given with reference to FIG.

  FIG. 15 is an explanatory diagram showing a specific example of character position correction. As shown in the upper diagram of FIG. 15, it is assumed that “123” is left-justified and “3” is biased to one side of the character frame in the account number entry column. In this case, the position correction unit 325 moves the characters in the account number cut-out image backward by four digits based on the information on the correction digit number. Specifically, as illustrated in the middle diagram of FIG. 15, the position correction unit 325 cuts off an area corresponding to “4b + 4c” on the rear side of the cut image of the account number, and converts the characters in the cut image of the account number to “ It is moved to the rear side by a length corresponding to “4b + 4c”. With this configuration, the characters that have been left-justified in the cut-out image of the account number are corrected to the right-justified character arrangement.

  Further, as illustrated in the lower diagram of FIG. 15, the position correcting unit 325 corresponds to the character position deviation “ZX” of “3” in the character number “3” in the cut image of the account number. The character position “3” is corrected by moving the length. Then, the screen generation unit 326 generates an entry screen using the clipped image whose character position has been corrected by the position correction unit 325.

  With this configuration, when the account number cut-out image and the account number recognition result are arranged one above the other on the entry screen, the horizontal position of each character can be more accurately aligned. As a result, it is expected that the work efficiency and work accuracy of the operator on the entry screen will be further improved.

  Note that the position correction unit 325 may perform position correction based on the deviation amount of the character position only for characters whose deviation amount exceeds the threshold value. Since the influence of the minute bias amount below the threshold on the operator's work is limited, as described above, by omitting the position correction of characters whose bias amount is below the threshold, while maintaining the operator's work efficiency, It is possible to suppress the processing load of the system.

Then, the position correction unit 325 corrects the character position in the account number cut-out image based on the number of correction digits (S532). Further, the position correction unit 325 corrects the deviation of the character position by moving the character whose deviation amount exceeds the threshold by a length corresponding to the deviation amount (S534, S535). Subsequently, the screen generation unit 326 generates an entry screen using the cut image of the account number whose character position has been corrected by the position correction unit 325 (S536). The entry screen generated by the screen generation unit 326 is transmitted from the communication unit 334 of the exchange server 30-2 to the entry terminal 40 (S540).

  Thereafter, the entry terminal 40 displays the entry screen received from the exchange server 30-2 (S544), and the operator of the entry terminal 40 performs entry operations such as confirmation operation and data input on the entry screen (S548). When the transaction content is confirmed through entry work by the operator, the transaction content confirmed by the entry terminal 40 is transmitted to the host computer of the financial institution, and the host computer executes the transaction.

  As described above, the exchange server 30-2 according to the second embodiment of the present invention performs position correction based on the character position bias amount in addition to the position correction based on the correction digit number described in the first embodiment. Do. With this configuration, when the account number cut-out image and the account number recognition result are arranged one above the other on the entry screen, the horizontal position of each character can be more accurately aligned. As a result, it is expected that the work efficiency and work accuracy of the operator on the entry screen will be further improved.

As a result, it is expected to improve the operator's work efficiency and work accuracy on the entry screen.

  Further, according to the second embodiment of the present invention, in addition to the position correction based on the number of correction digits described in the first embodiment, the position correction based on the amount of deviation of the character position is performed. With this configuration, when the account number cut-out image and the account number recognition result are arranged one above the other on the entry screen, the horizontal position of each character can be more accurately aligned. As a result, it is expected that the work efficiency and work accuracy of the operator on the entry screen will be further improved.

  Although the preferred embodiments of the present invention have been described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings, the present invention is not limited to such examples.

Of course, it is understood that these also belong to the technical scope of the present invention.

  For example, although an example in which each entry field such as an account number is written horizontally has been described above, each entry field may be written vertically. In this case, the cut image and the character recognition result may be displayed side by side on the entry screen, and the character position in the cut image may be corrected according to the method described in the first embodiment or the second embodiment. That is, the character position in the cut-out image may be moved up and down based on the number of digits of correction data inserted in the character recognition result or the amount of character bias in the character frame.

  In the above description, the window terminal 20 cuts out the form image, performs 0 correction processing and deviation amount detection, and the exchange server 30 corrects the character position. However, the division of functions is not limited to this example. . For example, the window terminal 20 may correct the character position, or the exchange server 30 may extract a form image or detect a bias amount.

  In the above, the correction of the character position in the cut-out image of the account number has been mainly described. However, the embodiment of the present invention can be similarly applied to the correction of the character position in the cut-out image of the other entry fields.
