  1. Release date for V2 including local container support?

    For planning purposes we need to know when V2 is planned to be released. We also need to use the local container version so we need to know if the release of that will be different than V2 GA. Ideally we would like to test the local V2 container prior to GA.

  2. Label tool and form processing

    We did some testing with the examples. Particularly we want to start with the recognition of invoices so we need only the payment information, amount, … We started with the .NET SDK example and the custom form recognizer model. But we are receiving to much unnecessary information. Instead we are using the sample labeling tool which helps us to tag the necessary fields. Is there a way to upload the data of the training of the labeling tool in the same way as the customer form recognizer does?

  3. Cognitive Service Container with V2.0 Support

    The containers provided are with V1.0 API and all limitations ( no Layout API, 4Mb Dataset for training, ...).
    When containers will be updated for V2.0 API ?

    Thx

  4. Roadmap

    Are you able to disclose what the roadmap is for the Form Recognizer product? I'm particularly interested in using the Custom Model and Labelling Tool.

  5. Fix .Net SDK error for Analyze method

    I'm getting the following error when using the analyze method of the SDK:

    AnalyzeResult result = await _formRecognizerClient.AnalyzeWithCustomModelAsync(new Guid(modelId), stream, contentType: "application/pdf");

    In case of HTML form data, the multipart request must contain a document with a media type of - 'application/pdf', 'image/jpeg' or 'image/png'.

    Error code: UnsupportedMediaType
    Status code: 415

    The data in the stream is correct, it contains a small pdf file.

    More code leading up to the error:

    var file = HttpContext.Current.Request.Files.Count > 0 ? HttpContext.Current.Request.Files[0] : null;
    if (file != null && file.ContentLength > 0)
    {

    using (var stream = file.InputStream){
    
    AnalyzeResult result = await _formRecognizerClient.AnalyzeWithCustomModelAsync(new

  6. Make it possible to use a download of the pageResult property of the GetAnalyzeFormResult API as an input for the TrainCustomModel API

    Make it possible to use the same structure of the pageResult property of the GetAnalyzeFormResult API, as an input for the TrainCustomModel API label files data structure. This would make it easier to improve the model key-value associations based on the results of the model.
    I would like to update the content of the pageResult structure and re-use it in a next TrainCustomModel API call.
    In the current version these are 2 different structures with similar data.

  7. How to label a table in a form?

    In the Azure form recognizer official website "https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/services/cognitive-services/form-recognizer/" few examples have tables in the sample file. In output also we have an attribute called table in sample json. Please guide us in labeling a table in a custom layout form.

  8. How to label an electronic generated form for custom training?

    After going through steps mentioned in the below source url "https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/form-recognizer/quickstarts/label-tool" we didn't get all the products tagged as expected(Refer Output.jpg).

    In the output file the highlighted fields were not detected can anyone please suggest us the way to tag the data and to improve the model accuracy.

    We have trained the model with 10 samples of same template in different variations.

    For Example one form having 2 products in the Description table and another having 6 products and so on.

    Can you please try and label 5 forms with the maximum number of rows you would like to extract ? For example all labeled data have 6 rows and when analyzing extract any number of rows forms.

  9. Prebuilt receipts doesn't recognize logo'd merchant names

    If a receipt only has the merchant logo and not the merchant name on a receipt, the prebuilt receipt model returns nothing for the MerchantName.
    For example, Home Depot has their logo and "The Home Depot" in reverse font on their logo but the OCR doesn't pick it up.

  10. Prebuilt receipts doesn't recognize invoice style receipts

    Many businesses have 8.5x11 invoice style receipts (parts stores, rental businesses, service businesses, etc.). The prebuilt receipts model returns no data on these even though they are accepted with no errors.

  11. Support well known tax forms as pre-built form

    Start supporting well known tax forms i.e. w2, 1099 forms etc as pre-built forms so users don't have to create custom model for it and train them.

  12. Add the ability to train a model with a blob larger than 4mb

    I am trying to use Microsoft Form Recogniser to get the key value pairs from medical forms. However there are a number of different types of form and cannot currently train an accurate enough model to use with the current size limit.

  13. Define a key/value when its wrong.

    I make several test and works very fine but in some cases the key value is wrong even the key is on de left of the value, it would be nice to specify the key when its wrong to train a better model.

  14. Handwritten forms

    We need an ability to extract key-value pairs from a form which is hand filled or hand written. For example - an insurance claim form which is filled in by a person or an agent. Is some work being done on this ?

  15. Form with tables, checkboxes, and whole lot of square boxes

    I have trained my form recognizer model using all the requirements and tips provided in documentation. However, the output is not good at all.
    The form that I am trying to train on is attached (empty version). I have used 2 filled in forms as well as per requirements.
    The form has two small tables at the top - even these haven't been read correctly. And then there are whole lot of square boxes (representing one character) to fill in details of the users. The boundaries of these square boxes are being read either as 1 or as a dash…

  16. Form Recognizer doesn't work with Japanese characters even with very basic files.

    The attached example is used for training, but the trained model is not able to segregate keys and values. All the keys are set-up to "Tokens" value ( eg: "0": [ "Tokens" ])

    Analyze Forms component will only extract some of the data, and will anyway allocate all of them on only one key.

    Is there a version of Form Recognizer that works better with Japanese characters ? I am currently using the one on West Europe.

  17. Does Form Recognizer work with files in Blob Storage

    Having an issue with the QuickStart for Form Recognizer .NET SDK.

    The example works great when I feed it a PDF file that is local to my PC. I want to pass it a PDF file that exists in Azure Blob Storage so I modified the example to use a MemoryStream variable instead of a FileStream. This give me a "415 - UnsupportedMediaType" error message even though the same file works correctly if I analyze it from my local PC.

    What am I missing? Does Form Recognizer support analyzing files from blob storage?

  18. Better detection of field values wihtin character boxes

    Our forms (or our client forms, which we have no control over) use the style of value field where there are a series of boxes, and every character must be entered into a box. I believe these are designed for template-based form recognition, but this seems to be a big problem for Form Recognizer.

  19. Recognize Checkbox and Signature sections

    We have a number of paper forms that are completed by staff. The forms include checkboxes. We need to confirm that the checkboxes have been checked.

    Additionally, we require the form to be signed by the person completing it. We'd like to confirm that a mark has been made in the signature area.

    It would be great if there was a way that Form Recognizer could just register that a pen mark has been made in a certain area, even if it can't read it (e.g. a signature or a tick in a box)

  20. Increase Timeout on Training using PDF and Logic Apps

    When I use logic apps to train a model, it seems to timeout when I use more than 5 PDFs (I used 10). 5 PDFs seemed to work at 52 seconds.

    Form Recognizer Logic Connector currently uses the Form Recognizer v1.0 API which is a sync API and has a HTTP timeout limit. Form Recognizer v2.0 (preview) is an Async API and does not have this timeout limit. You can create a custom Logic App connector to Form Recognizer v2.0 (preview) API.
