ISO 2033

The MICR E-13B font, showing the ISO-IR-98 character repertoire.

The ISO 2033:1983 standard defines a character set (ISO-IR-98) encoding the character repertoire of the E13B font, as used with optical character recognition or magnetic ink character recognition.[1]

The digits are preserved in their ASCII locations. Letters and symbols unavailable in the E13B font are omitted, while specialised punctuation for bank cheques included in the E13B font is added. The same symbols are available in Unicode in the Optical Character Recognition block.
