Quickly and easily extract data from multipage PDFs with just a few simple steps! Our OCR Multipage API will help you process faster text extraction from large documents.
Multipage OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology is an asynchronous operation that generally refers to the ability of an OCR system to process and extract text from multiple pages of a document.
OCR itself is a technology that converts different types of documents, such as scanned paper documents, PDF files, or images captured by a digital camera, into editable and searchable data.
Unlike single-page OCR, which processes individual pages, OCR for multipage documents involves the recognition and extraction of text from all pages of a document in one operation.
Now, instead of waiting for each page to be processed sequentially, all pages are submitted for OCR simultaneously and processed together in the background. Users can continue working while OCR is being performed, and results are usually delivered when all pages are processed.
Our standardized API allows you to use different providers on Eden AI to easily integrate Multipage OCR APIs into your system.
Amazon Textract offers an asynchronous API for processing multipage documents in PDF, TIFF, or TIF format. Asynchronous multipage document processing is handy for dealing with big, multipage documents. A PDF file with over 1,000 pages, for example, takes a long time to process, but processing the PDF file asynchronously allows your program to perform other activities while the operation is running.
Using a Multipage OCR API offers a range of benefits that enhance various aspects of text data processing and analysis. Some of the key advantages include:
Multipage OCR APIs have a wide range of uses across various industries and applications. Here are some common use cases:
Organizations often have extensive collections of physical documents that need to be digitized for easier storage and retrieval. Multipage OCR APIs can efficiently process these documents, extracting text and making them available in digital formats for future reference.
In sectors like finance and insurance, important data is often trapped in unstructured documents. Multipage OCR helps extract specific data points, like policy numbers or transaction amounts and populates databases or systems with accurate information.
With global interactions becoming more common, translation services rely on Multipage OCR to first extract the source text from documents, images, or web content. Once extracted, the content can be sent to translation engines for conversion.
Online marketplaces need to catalog numerous products. Multipage OCR can extract information from product images or catalogs, facilitating quick product listings with accurate details.
In HR departments or customer service centers, forms are filled out daily. Multipage OCR helps automate form processing by extracting data from forms, reducing manual data entry and potential errors.
