Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a method by which software "reads" the text characters to preform text recognition from an otherwise flat, scanned image. The resulting text can be placed anywhere programmatically and is necessary in larger document workflows and for discoverability.
Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) follows the same software concept but is tuned to recognize hand printed rather than computer printed text. To do ICR you need to clearly define the areas that need to be recognized, text should be in block caps only with framing.
