What Is OCR?

Updated at: Aug 05, 2019 GMT+08:00

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) allows you to detect and recognize printed characters in images and convert such characters into editable text.

OCR provides services through open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). You can obtain the inference result by accessing and invoking APIs in real time. It helps you collect key data automatically and build an intelligent service system, thereby improving service efficiency.

Currently, OCR provides the following sub-services:

  • Passport OCR

    Passport OCR automatically recognizes all information on a Chinese passport. For other countries' passports, Passport OCR can recognize six to seven key fields based on the machine-readable code, including the name, gender, date of birth, passport number, country code, and date of expiry. Passport information can be accurately recognized under abnormal conditions such as dark light, tilt, overexposure, and shadow.

  • Thai ID Card OCR

    Thai ID Card OCR automatically recognizes all information on Thai ID cards. After an ID card is scanned, information like ID number, name, and address can be identified even under complex conditions such as low light, tilt, overexposure, and shadow.

  • Myanmar ID Card OCR

    Myanmar ID Card OCR automatically recognizes all information on both sides of Myanmar national registration cards. After a national registration card is scanned, information like ID number, name, and address can be identified even under complex conditions such as low light, tilt, overexposure, and shadow.

  • Myanmar Driver License OCR

    Myanmar Driver License OCR automatically recognizes structured information on Myanmar-issued driver's licenses, including the ID number, name, national registration card number, date of birth, blood type, and validity period.
