The letters are somewhat squared. Also, notice the capital "I." Can anyone help? Thanks.

No good answer.
Some fonts in the ballpark:
Eco Coding by Hyun-Seung Lee, Dae-Hoon Hahm, Min-Joo Ham
Fabrizio Schiavi's PragmataPro
Ray Larabie's Fake Receipt
Good find Aaron. Interesting to see what Adobe has to say about the OCR fonts
In 1968, American Type Founders produced OCR-A, one of the first optical character recognition typefaces to meet the criteria set by the U.S. Bureau of Standards.
The design is simple so that it can be read by a machine, but it is slightly more difficult for the human eye to read. OCR-A follows the 1981 standard set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), X-3.17-1981 (size I). The same design is also specified for the German DIN 66008 standard. OCR-B was designed in 1968 by Adrian Frutiger for Monotype.
This design pushes the limits of the optical reader, but is easier for people to read. OCR-B’s construction follows the ISO 1073/II-1976 (E) standard, with 1979 corrections (letterpress design, size I). Both OCR-A and OCR-B have “alternate” versions, which have the standard ISO-Adobe character set instead of the more limited OCR character set.
