BARCODE

A barcode is an optical machine-readable representation of data.

3

BRAILLE

A writing system using a series of raised dots to be read with the fingers by people whose eyesight is not sufficient for reading.

4

BRAILLE CELL

Series of up to six raised dots set out in a domino-type cell

5

CHANGE DIFFERENCES

All insertions, smaller than a sentence, where a deletion occurs in the same area of the document (the previous and following matched up pair is the same in both documents). Any difference that is longer than a sentence, but otherwise a change, is an insertion/deletion.

6

CMYK

The CMYK color model (process color, four color) is a subtractive color model, used

in color printing, and is also used to describe the printing process itself. CMYK refers to the four inks used in some color printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black).

7

DELETION DIFFERENCES

Found in the Master but not in the Sample.

8

DELTA-E

Delta-E (ΔE) is a single number that represents the 'distance' between two colors. A color difference of less than a Delta E of 3 means that the human eye cannot perceive the color difference between two points.

9

DIFFERENCE

A discrepancy between the Master and the Sample.

10

DIGIMARC BARCODE

A proprietary method for imperceptibly enhancing packaging, images and audio with data that is detected by enabled devices.

11

DOMAIN AUTHENTICATION

The username, password, and password settings are maintained by Windows XP and later Windows Server operating systems (Active directory).

12

DOT DIAMETER

Distance from the beginning of the upward dot slope and the end of the downward dot slope.

13

DOT HEIGHT

Distance from the beginning of the dot slope to its uppermost peak.

14

ELECTRONIC FILE

The soft copy (original artwork).

15

EMBOSSED

Raised Braille dots created with the use of a dye press.

16

GLUE DOTS

Raised Braille dots created by a transparent resinous ultraviolet curing process.

17

HARDCOPY

Paper copy.

18

HICKIES

White spots on the printed page when specks of dirt or bits of paper fiber adhere to the printing plate or blanket.

19

ICC PROFILE

A set of data that characterizes a color input or output device, or a color space, according to standards promulgated by the International Color Consortium (ICC).

20

INSERTION DIFFERENCES

Found in the Sample but not in the Master.

21

LAB

The CIELAB color space (also known as CIE L*a*b* or sometimes abbreviated as simply "Lab" color space) is a color space defined by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE). The space itself is a three-dimensional 3-axis color system with dimension L for lightness and a and b for the color dimensions, allowing an infinite number of possible representations of colors.

22

LOCAL AUTHENTICATION

The username, password, and password settings are maintained by the application.

23

LOCATION DIFFERENCES

One or more consecutive matching sentences in the Sample where the prior and post text is different than in the Master ignoring added, deleted or moved sentences.

24

MARBURG MEDIUM SPACING CONVENTION

The defined system of dimensions within and between the Braille cells.

25

MASTER

A packaging component that has been approved by a regulatory body. The Master may be an electronic file or a hardcopy.

26

MIXED DIFFERENCES

Occurs when one word contains more than one type of font difference (e.g. a color change and a size change). "Mixed" type would also be used when one word contains two or more different font names, two or more different font sizes, or two or more different font colors.

27

MODULE

Graphics, Color, Barcode, Braille, Text and Spelling.

28

31

REPORT

33

SAMPLE

34

SKEW

Angular deviation of the image. Shall be limited to 10%.

35

SPACE DIFFERENCES

The space difference is a change due to an actual space inserted between characters vs. no space. The new-line differences are also identified as space difference where text after hyphen is moved to the next line.
