Amazon Textract has improved accuracy of detecting currency symbols, key value pairs and checkboxes

By GIXnews

Amazon Textract is a machine learning service that enables customers to automatically extract text and data, including from tables and forms within scanned documents and images. As a fully managed service, Textract delivers continuous improvement over time. Today, we are pleased to announce a few quality enhancements to both our Optical Character Recognition (OCR) feature and the forms recognition feature. The new OCR model detects the degree symbol (°) and the currency symbols of Chinese Yuan (CNY ¥), Japanese Yen (JPY ¥), Indian Rupee (₹), British Pound (£), and the US Dollar ($) more precisely than before.
