Summary: 
Error correcting codes are divided into two types, i.e., block codes and convolutional codes. In this paper, the error correcting codes of both types for improving the reliabilities on random-error channels, burst-error channels and compound-error channels are briefly surveyed and then some aspects of the wide applicabilities of error correcting codes are discussed.
