Improved Number OCR and Special Character OCR with OCR Engine2

Improved Number OCR and Special Character OCR with OCR Engine2

We launched a new OCR Engine that brings improved numeric and alphanumeric OCR and special character OCR.

We implemented the second OCR Engineto give you access to a second OCR algorithm. It is better than the default engine (now called “engine1”) in many cases for Latin character languages (e. g. English OCR, French OCR, German OCR,…). So we recommend that you try engine1 first (since it is faster!), but if the OCR results are not perfect for your use case, please try the same document with engine2. You can use the new OCR engine with our free online OCR service on the front page, and with the OCR API.

To test the new OCR engine right away, use the free online OCR feature on our front page. You can switch between both OCR engines and compare the result.

Multi-Page TIFF OCR

Multi-Page TIFF OCR

With the lastest OCR API and Online OCR update, we added support for multi-page TIFF/TIF files. Now they are processed the same way as multi-page PDF documents. You can test the multi-page TIFF support directly in the online OCR form.

How to OCR a single page or a multipage TIFF file

The multi-page TIFF support is built directly into the OCR API. New command is required. The API recognizes multi-page TIFF files automatically. OCRing multipage tiff images is now as easy as doing PDF OCR. The resulting text is subsequently returned in the API JSON response.
