Form Recognizer

  1. 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)

    Thank you for the request. This checkbox feature is being planned for the next release.

  2. Manual Training

    Make it trainable (maybe with a UI) where users can manually point or map fields they need. We have tons of different templates of Invoices but we basically need only the main fields on the Invoice recognized, and currently we have no way of pointing out what we need and with the 50 pages\4 Mb per model and we feel very limited.

    Maybe a way of saying Invoice #, or Invoice No. or Inv# should be mapped to Invoice Number for all of the results for this model; this would be of much help when extracting data from different Invoice…

  3. 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.

    Form Recognizer discovers and extracts tables automatically. Table results are part of the pageResults section in the JSON output. If the table in the form was not discovered you can label tables a values by labeling each table cell and training with the maximum number of rows in the tables. Form Recognizer does not yet support labeling tables as tables.

  4. When will form-recognizer support the complex forms?

    Forms usually have complex structures as well and that is where automated services are needed. I have forms that contain merged cells, and nested tables. On documentation of form-recognizer, it is stated that such forms are not supported. Does Microsoft looking forward towards making form-recognizer capable for such forms as well? If yes, any expected time frame?

  5. 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…

  6. Auto recognise wich custom model to use.

    Hi
    Woult it be posible to auto detect wich custom model to use? In a normal invoicing flow you would have one big pile of different invoices and send Them to be recognizer.
    Then it would sort Them in 2 piles one wher a model was found and one without.
    Do you understand what i Mean by that?

  7. 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.

  8. What's the best way to train a table without line? (See Pic)

    I know Form Recognizer does not yet support labeling tables as tables. Suggestions please.
    Please see pic1 for reference. Number of Line Items may vary at large.
    And, What can we do if some text is not recognized by the OCR labeling tool see pic1 ?

  9. Add lasso selection functionality to Form Labeling tool

    It would be really nice to have a "Lasso" selection functionality in the form labeling tool. I know I can hold the left mouse button down to highlight multiple words but there are some areas of forms (e.g. remarks) where we have several hundred words that have to be selected. They usually are in a rectangle shape so hence a lasso selection would work perfectly.

  11. 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

  12. Increase limit of number of samples for custom training

    We understand that the number of samples for custom training is currently limited to 50. We hope that by providing more samples, the model would be more accurate in the end on large volumes, so would it be possible to raise that limit?

  13. Process multiple documents contained in a single file

    I’m working on a project to create custom Machine Learning models for the processing of invoices using Azure Form Recognizer and OCR Form Labeling Tool.

    In general it’s working really well, however, I have a situation where I have more than one invoice in the same PDF file. In is current form, the OCR Form Labeling Tool & Azure Form Recognizer don’t handle this situation very well. I‘m wondering if there are any tips or guidelines for this situation or will this use case be covered in the future?

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!!

  14. Limit processing to first X pages

    We should be able to use a setting to only analyze the first X pages of forms.
    I.e. we have forms related to phone bills, which the first 2 pages have relevant info then there is 20+ pages of just call records which we do not want to analyze.
    We should be able to tell the analyze forms function to only process the first X number of pages.

    Especially in the power automate function.

  15. Recognizing form regions

    At the moment we don't have features like recognizing checkboxes, radio buttons, signatures, etc.

    Can form recognizer recognize a region of the form, so we can cut that part out and put for further processing?

    For example, I would like to know where on the document are the radio button questions, so that I know in which area I need to do custom processing.

  16. Separate hand written text from printed text

    Occasionally, OCR puts together printed and handwritten text as a single tag. I would like them to be separate.

    For example:

    Compay Handwritten company name

    Printed text is usually the label while the handwritten text is what we are looking for.

  18. Allow different formats to be trained in the same model

    Allow different formats to be trained in the same model. Currently, for each format, a new model is created.

  19. 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.

  20. Issue on fields with multiple line headers

    First, congrats to the team for the great new product!
    It works already quite well on the forms we tried, despite small variation of templates for same type of document, which is a great help!
    But at the time being, we can't consider to use it, as it seems to have an issue with fields having headers split on multiple lines. We can provide samples but not on a public forum.
