Amazon Textract announces quality updates to its forms extraction feature

Amazon Textract is a machine learning service that automatically extracts text, handwriting and data from scanned documents that goes beyond simple optical character recognition (OCR) to identify, understand, and extract data from forms and tables. We continuously improve the underlying machine learning models based on customer feedback to provide even better accuracy. Today, we are pleased to announce an accuracy enhancement update to our forms extraction feature. Starting today, Textract more accurately detects the checkboxes and key-value pairs within documents and images. The accuracy is especially improved for invoices and receipts, but customers will see improvements across many documents in finance, healthcare, legal, public sector, and more.
