  1. OCR processing of numerical text should not be impaired when detected language is Turkish

    When testing with Turkish text that also includes numerical strings, I have isolated the following anomaly:

    Consider two versions of an otherwise identical image (for informative purposes, the image is a graphic depicting the total number of deaths in Turkey from COVID-19, on a particular date):

    Turkish version:
    TÜRKİYE’DE ÖLÜMLER 1.368

    English version:
    DEATHS IN TURKEY 1.368

    When the image is OCR-processed with the text in English (i.e. with the words: “DEATHS IN TURKEY”), the numeric string is returned correctly as “1.368”.

    However, when the image is OCR-processed with the text in Turkish (i.e. with the words: “TÜRKİYE’DE ÖLÜMLER”), the…

  2. Hindi (Devanagri) Language Support

    This API has limited language support. Please do include more languages support as well. Or please share the idea of creating our own custom language train models and use them as our source language.

  3. Allow specifying face detection model for Analyze image

    Face API allows has 2 different face detection model.
    The main difference (at least for us) is that detection_01 provides face attributes, while detection_02 does not, but it detects small, side-view and blurry faces.

    We would be keen to use AnalyzeImage with detection_02 - we don't need face attributes but need to find as many faces as possible along with other objects and image description.

    It's possible to do it now by making separate calls to AnalyzeImage and Face.DetectFaces, but it's not very good cost wise.

    Would it be possible to extend AnalyzeImage API to allow setting face detection model?

  4. OCR return wrong text with very low confidence score

    OCR misread letter "l" to "i" and return 0.355 as confidence score. Is this a bug?

    The email part OCR service return as "Email: vi@bimco.org" with confidence score 0.355 while the rest is correct parsing with confidence score always higher than 0.9. I used the same file with different OCR providers and only your service return wrong value.

    I tested the service with different pdf file and sometimes, it parse wrong "f" and "r" as well.

  6. Ensure that all pages are returned, even ones that Computer Vision is unable to extract text from.

    If a document consists of pages that contain font of a 'good' size and then some documents (think Terms and Conditions) that contains a lot of small text that can't be interpreted by Computer Vision then it gets excluded from the response.

    The page numbers are returned - so this is useful. But in the case where a 'complicated' page is the last page, this would not be returned, so the number of pages you believe you have would be one less than the number of pages you actually have. Including (at the very least) a JSON segment with:
    {…

  8. Ensure the OCR File Size

    The German guide says image size for the OCR has to be between 50 x 50 and 4200 x 4200 pixels, with no additional info to file sizes (JPG in my case). However, files larger 3000 x 3000 are rejected in my case. Am I missing something?
    Thanks in advance

  9. Is it recommendable to perform any pre-processing on images or PDF before using the Read API? OCR

    I suppose noise-reduction and binarization is already done on your side right? Or do I have to pre-process documents and images before feeding them into the API?

  12. READ API should be able to handle alpha numeric pattern postal codes

    Besides Leaving Comments under review for almost forever, it would be good to get some feedback from this forum.

  13. Spanish and French language support

    Read API supports only English and Spanish is in Preview. Any ideas when Spanish will be fully supported and when some other languages like French or German will be supported as well?

  16. Not Detecting Space Between Middle Initial and Last Name

    We have printed documents with a person's name that includes their middle initial (without a period i.e. JOHN A DOE). Azure OCR usually detects a space between the first name and middle initial but not the middle initial and last name.

  18. Improve single-character recognition

    Single characters are having a very tough time being recognized, even in the most optimal conditions for OCR (shown in the attached PDF). Also attached is a text view of how the content gets OCR-ed.

    I saw that this is a recognized problem in a few ideas from a couple of years ago, but I was wondering if any progress was made in fixing this known problem.

    Functionally, this provides issues with OCR-ing tables that have a "Quantity" or any other amount less than 10.

  19. It is found that the subscriptionKey is placed in the request header during API use, which is unsafe

    After looking at the documentation, you'll notice that a lot of API requests put subscriptionKey in the request header. That way, you can grab the request and get the user's key. This allows illegal use of the service.
