  • World-class accuracy and speed
  • Recognize and process unstructured and semi-structured forms
  • Recognize both vertical and horizontal text from the same document
  • Unique color and bitonal image recognition for scanned documents and pictures
  • Classify and process both single and multi-page forms, including individual and out-of-order pages
  • Automatic detection and correction of page orientation and skew angle
  • Enhance recognition accuracy with powerful document cleanup and preprocessing including dropout of form table lines
  • Use regular expressions to find and validate text
  • Organize forms into categories and sub-categories
  • Comprehensive confidence reporting for each form field type
    • Character location, size and baseline
    • Character attributes (end of word, end of line, end of paragraph, etc.)
    • Font properties (monospace, proportional, serf, sans-serif, bold, italic, underline, strikethrough)
    • Confidence values
