      • OCR handwritten demo and test app giving different results

        I tried your demo at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/services/cognitive-services/computer-vision/ with my image. Then I created my test app and used similar code with eastAsia server. Your demo is giving perfect results but my app is generating different text. I am wondering why this is happening. Actually I am using the same bot but not getting same results. Is there anything that I am missing?
        Please give me feedback on the same.

          • How far has the API gone with trying to detect people from the back view?

            Can the API detect humans even from a back view. It might not be very accurate just like humans but after you have lived with someone else for a long time there is a high chance that you can guess who they are even from a back view. Therefore was wondering if the computer detected multiple images of people even from back view whether it would be able to guess.

            • Results are very poor using the API

              The results using the website (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/cognitive-services/computer-vision/#text) are very good. But when I use the API, it's very poor. How would you explain the difference in the results? I used the exact code from this website and even used images from the website to test (Like the green closed sign).
              i use v2.0 and both westcentralus and westeurope
              Does the website do some preprocessing? like rotating the text?

              • Make detecting hollow text better

                Trying to find text on an image with hollow text doesn't return the right text results from the image and sometimes returns none at all.

                    • Increase file size limit from 4MB

                      Could we have the API File size limit increased? currently we work with a lot of imagery with high resolution images that average ~8MB.

                      Can the Size limit be increased

                      • Choose to detect printed text or handwritten text

                        It would be great if we can specify a parameter for OCR to just read printed or handwritten text. In the case of scanned documents it would improve the accuracy and reduce the API's workload.
                        It would also make it easier to visualize the detection and read/check the accuracy of large batches of tests

                        • Add ability detect checkboxes or radio buttons to OCR and Handwritten text

                          I've successfully been able to use vision to extract handwritten text out of fixed forms by knowing the coordinates of each form field. However many of my forms have checkboxes and/or radio buttons that the users will be filling in with pen. It doesn't seem that vision has a way to detect this type of content.

                          • Compare two images and return confidence and heatmap of difference areas

                            You have two images like tax forms. Compare the two images. Return a confidence they are the same. Return a set of cords for the image where the primary differences occur. PDF as well as jpg and bmp support would be nice.

                            • Support for Offline OCR like Firebase ML Kit

                              Firebase started offering offline on-device image recognition.

                              https://firebase.google.com/products/ml-kit/

                              Are there any plans to allow use to do something like OCR offline like Google does?

                              • [API] Is it possible for Computer Vision API - v2.0 /OCR to return also a font/font size along text and bounding rectangle?

                                In the OCR API from Computer Vision API - v2.0, for every word I get the text and the bounding rectangle. Would it be posible to also get the font type and optionally font size/other parameters?
                                Usage scenario: overlay new text over the old one, for example live translate.

                                  My application is trying to determine images with people in them. I thought I would just be able to look for a certain tag or category but these do not seem to be consistent, even within the one result.

                                  For example, I have a result with the caption "a close up of a person". It has a category of "people_", score: 0.75 and category of "outdoor_", score: 0.003. So far so good. However, it only has 1 tag of "outdoor", confidence: 0.99. There is no person/people tag (at the high level - there are description tags but without any score…

                                  • add tools to support adjusting image quality

                                    My applications allows end-users to upload images that are used on the site. Users do not understand how to upload images with the correct aspect ratio, size, pixel ratio, etc. I need tools to allow me to process these images and correct these issues. I am currently using Cloudinary but would consider this Azure service if you can add these features.
