  1. OCR does not recognize isolated numbers

    Whenever I send an image like the attached one, I only get the words REV back but not the number 1 that's under it. More unique number shapes like 2, 3, 4, etc. are usually recognized but the number 1 is rarely recognized.

  2. 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.

  3. Local container only supports English, no Traditional Chinese support.

    Please consider add Traditional Chinese into support list of local container.

  5. Provide OCR for Machine Readable Zone

    Right Now, OCR can't detect MRZ on documents like photo Id or passport. Get this information is a 'must' for many applications that need to verify legal documents

  6. Single Character recognition

    All I'm trying to recognize is single letters. Such as S, M, L, XL and so forth. Why is Microsoft's OCR unable to recognize these characters?
