Using the MICR E13B Fonts

ConnectCode MICR E13B Font is extremely easy to use despite being a package that provides one of the most comprehensive numbers of fonts.

In most cases, users will only need to use the default MICR E13B font provided in the package. This is the font that we have tuned, optimized and found to work on all widely used MICR hardware. We have distributed MICR fonts for many years and this is the font that has helped users simplify the deployment of their MICR solution significantly. This is also the font we recommend for users without prior MICR experience or the font to get started with when using our package.

When using the MICR E13B Font, simply set the font name to CCodeMICR (or CCodeMICRT for the Trial) and choose 12 points for the font size. Enter 0 to 9 for the numeric digits and lowercase a,b,c,d for the special symbols - Amount, Domestic, BSB and Dash.

Calibration Fonts

ConnectCode MICR E13B Font has been designed and developed according to the industry specification ISO 1004:1995. The fonts have been tested vigorously on many different types of MICR hardware internally and also by many different organizations externally. However depending on the users' printer, paper or toner used, slight misalignment in the characters may still occur. Some printers can also be prone to alignment inaccuracies. Calibration can be performed to improve misalignment (if any) and ensure optimal scanning of the characters.
