Errors are handled in real channels by a combination of techniques and it is the overall result that matters. This means that different media and channels can have completely different approaches to the problem, yet still deliver reliable data.
In the data recording or transmission fields, any time a recovered bit is not the same as what was supplied to the channel, there has been an error. Different types of data have different tolerances to error. Any time the error rate is in excess of the tolerance, we need to do something. Error handling is a broad term that includes everything to do with errors. It includes studying the error sensitivity of different types of data, measures to prevent or reduce errors, measures to actually correct them and measures to conceal the error if correction is not available or not possible.
