OCR (Optical Character Recognition) or document parsing, is the process of converting a text image into a machine-readable text format. OCR technology is widely used to detect and extract the text present in an image or PDF, as well as its position in the document.
There are several OCR vendors on the market, but their performance varies depending on each provider. They also have different costs and processing times: it is important to be able to test some of them before choosing the right one.
By aggregating several OCR engines on a single API, Eden AI allows you to use a number of OCR engines at the same time depending on the document you wish to extract the text from.
