Announcing enhancements to Amazon Rekognition text detection – support for more words, higher accuracy, and lower latency

Amazon Rekognition is a machine learning powered image and video analysis service that can identify objects and concepts, people, faces, inappropriate content, as well as detect text. Rekognition text detection detects and reads text in an image, and returns bounding boxes for each word found. Starting today, Rekognition can detect up to 100 words in an image, up from the previous limit of 50 words. In addition, you get higher accuracy, especially for cases with illegible text, which are correctly rejected now. Lastly, the average latency for each text detection API call is reduced by up to 70%.
