"One of the best Text extracting engines from documents/images"

What do you like best?

Amazon Textract is a powerful cloud based intelligent OCR tool for extracting text from scanned pdfs to handwriteen documents/Images. It uses a unique technique to extract data using machine learning from thousands of invoices, documents and templates present over the internet. This not only elimintates the need of additional hassle in customising stuff when using other OCR tools but also it improves the efficiency of the overall process by reducing time required for development and cost of the overall project.

What do you dislike?

Its implementation is some what easy but not that easy as Amazon claims, one has to perform multiple tweaks to get our desired outcome which is common with every other OCR softwares in the market like Abbyy etc. Artificial Intelligence will not work that effectively when using Textract on handwritten documents.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I absolutely recommend it to everyone and being expeirnced with many other OCR softwares in the market, Textract is much easier to configure and deploy in any business processes where data/text extraction from document is involved.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have earilier tried other softwares like Abbyy Flexicapture, tesseract and MODI before we finally made use of Textract in our projects. It was quite easy to configure Textract when compared to other tools where we need to create our own template and train the software to work on a document. Thes steps can be minimized when using Textract, However accuracy is not always 100% and your mileage will vary depending upon the type of document you are trying to process like a handwritten receipt or scanned invoice etc.

"The Best Optical Recognition software in the world"

What do you like best?

Amazon with its ground breaking research facilities enabled a marvelous Optical Charector recognition software that is capable of extracting text from documents and forms without hassle. Even though there are free tools like Google Tesseract and MODI suite from Microsoft. These require lot of tweaks and multiple trial and error scenarios to get the desired outcome which in turn requires lot of time and patience to deal with. so the project even might cross deadlines trying to find out the best possible configuration to deal with such free tools, on the other hand Amazon's textract is having built with thousands of free templates to choose from and with the elastic search what amazon claims can store millions of indexed document templates.

What do you dislike?

Nothing as such but a suggestion though, if its provided free of cost at least for some time then it can enable business users to experience the real power of it and also individual developers can contribute their development to the community thereby improving its abilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend everyone to try Amazon Textract before opting for any other paid OCR tools in the market like Abby and Adobe.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Textract we can customize things according to our need we can extract the data with an accuracy of upto 100%. This is what had changed the way we use OCR in our projects and our customers are very happy about it, as it also provides them an ability to change things on the go with out much complexity. With Textract we can quickly automate document workflows, enabling you to process millions of document pages with in span of minutes to hours.
