Form Recognizer

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 ?

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. Fixed: Microsoft.Azure.CognitiveServices.FormRecognizer.Models.ErrorResponseException: ‘Operation returned an invalid status

    TrainCustomModelAsync: Microsoft.Azure.CognitiveServices.FormRecognizer.Models.ErrorResponseException: ‘Operation returned an invalid status code ‘RequestEntityTooLarge’

    We have followed code examples but we are getting the following error (FR1.png) when calling TrainCustomModelAsync: Microsoft.Azure.CognitiveServices.FormRecognizer.Models.ErrorResponseException: ‘Operation returned an invalid status code ‘RequestEntityTooLarge’

    We are trying to pass a reference to the Training Data that has been populated in Azure (FR2.png). It is a collection of about 5 pdfs. Each with approx 4 pages at 300dpi or so.

    We adapted from the following sample: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/form-recognizer/quickstarts/dotnet-sdk

    Any help is gratefully received.

  9. 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?

  10. 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…

  11. Return JSON properly formatted

    Currently the JSON response we are getting back is being formated with single quotes instead of double quotes. Can this be changed to double quotes so that programs like VScode see this as properly formated JSON?

  12. How can we improve the accuracy of the form-recognizer model?

    I am using Microsoft form-recognizer service. My forms are bit complex and I tried training a model for them. The performance I achieved is not really good. Is there anyway I can improve this accuracy? Is there anyway to tune this model? I have trained the model using 5 different populated forms of the same type.

  13. Can we train a single model for multiple type of forms?

    I am using Microsoft form-recognizer cognitive service to train a model for forms. My question is that can we train a single model for multiple type of forms? Is it recommended? I have many multiple types of forms and I choose to train a single model for four different types, it get trained but is it a recommended approach?

  14. Response status code: 408

    Iam using Microsoft form-recognizer service and was able to train a model with 5 forms of the same type and it was successful. I was able to analyze that model on test forms as well, But when I tried training the same forms again, I faced the following error:

    Response status code: 408 Response body: {'error': {'code': '1011', 'innerError': {'requestId': 'fb75e36b-b704-49fe-a9bf-2fecaa71ca44'}, 'message': 'The operation exceeded allowed time limit and was canceled.

  15. Explain how 'empty' document templates need to be created & help the model trainer

    only reference that can be found relates to this article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/form-recognizer/quickstarts/curl-train-extract) - nothing explained in the API section of how to add these to the training model; if >1 helps the model etc.

    You can train a model with five filled-in forms or an empty form (include the word “empty” in the file name) plus two filled-in forms. Even if you have enough filled-in forms to train with, adding an empty form to your training data set can improve the accuracy of the model.

    For more information about building a training data set see “How to build a training data set for a custom model” document – https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/form-recognizer/build-training-data-set

  16. Improve the documentation about the SAS URL usage and requirements

    I'm finding unclear what/how to gnerate the SAS URL (what permissions are required, at what level).

  18. Taken to request access page even though already accepted to the preview

    Clicking on the Form Recognizer container link in the quick start section I get taken to the request access page. I am already accepted to the preview.
