Openerp support MICR Check Printing ?

MICR is Magnetic Ink Character Recognition, or MICR, is a character recognition technology used primarily by the banking industry to facilitate the processing of cheques. The technology allows computers to read information (such as account numbers) off printed documents. Unlike barcodes or similar technologies, however, MICR codes can be easily read by humans

Is OpenERP support this type of printing ???

In looking at what the MICR actually comprises, it seems that this is all about font selection.

Since the number 0-9 are just standard ANSI characters, then Odoo would support these 'out of the box', as long as you use the right font when performing the printing action (and the right printer obviously).

The control characters are now an official part of the Unicode set, so you could just use Unicode for the whole thing, with the appropriate font.

What more would you like Odoo to do with this?
