Data entry is the process of transcribing or copying data from usually a paper source into a computer or information system. This is done by a person manually using specialized tools (e.g. a keyboard or scanner). Data can consist of text, numeric, audio, video, or other types.
Data entry has two contradictory goals:
* maximum accuracy (entry with minimal errors), and
* maximum speed (greatest number of data per hour or minute).
