Technical: check/refine OCR efficiency of UFF
|||Ubuntu Font Family||
I often use OCR to convert pdf documents into text files for translation. Fonts poorly designed for OCR processing will for example show systematic mismatches for "1", "l", "I", "i", "j".
A quick glance at Ubuntu font shows that it should be reasonably OCR-proof, except for the lower-case "l" that looks quite similar to an upper-case "i", and the upper-case "o" looking much like a zero.
Maybe Ubuntu font could take a daring stance and be_very_OCR proof. This would make it a resolutely modern font, with a technical incentive for wide adoption: it would just work better on computers.
Thank you so much for your beautiful work.
