NEW: OCR Multipage PDFs available on Eden AI

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.

What is OCR Multipage Document API?

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.

Access many Multipage OCR providers with one API

Our standardized API allows you to use different providers on Eden AI to easily integrate Multipage OCR APIs into your system.

Amazon - Available on Eden AI

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.

Benefits of using a Multipage OCR API

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:

  1. Improved Responsiveness: Asynchronous processing allows your application to remain responsive and continue performing other tasks while waiting for the OCR to complete. This is particularly important for applications that require real-time interactions or have multiple concurrent tasks.
  2. Scalability: Asynchronous processing is well-suited for handling a large number of OCR requests simultaneously. It enables your application to distribute tasks across multiple threads or processes without causing bottlenecks.
  3. Optimized Resource Usage: Instead of holding up resources while waiting for the OCR process to finish, your application can use those resources to perform other tasks. This efficient resource utilization can lead to better overall performance.
  4. Flexibility: Asynchronous APIs often provide options for notifications or callbacks when processing is complete. This allows your application to adapt to different workflows and respond accordingly when OCR results are available.
  5. Batch Processing: If your application requires processing a large number of documents, images, or files, asynchronous processing can be used to submit tasks in batches and manage the results efficiently.

What are the uses of Multipage OCR APIs?

Multipage OCR APIs have a wide range of uses across various industries and applications. Here are some common use cases: ‍

‍1. Document Digitization

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.

2. Data Extraction

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.

3. Translation Services

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.

4. E-commerce and Retail

Online marketplaces need to catalog numerous products. Multipage OCR can extract information from product images or catalogs, facilitating quick product listings with accurate details.

5. Form Processing

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.

Best Practices for Multipage OCR on Eden AI

When implementing Multipage OCR on Eden AI or any other platform, it's essential to follow certain best practices to ensure optimal performance, accuracy, and security. Here are some general best practices for Multipage OCR on Eden AI:

  1. Choose the Right Document Format: Ensure that the input documents are in a format that is compatible with the OCR service. Common formats include images (TIFF or TIF) and PDF files.
  2. Security and Privacy: Be mindful of the data you're sending for OCR. Ensure that sensitive information is appropriately handled and protected.
  3. Documentation Review: Thoroughly review the documentation of the OCR provider you're using. It might provide specific recommendations or guidelines for asynchronous processing.
  4. Data Validation: After receiving OCR results, validate the extracted text to ensure its accuracy and completeness. Implement quality checks to catch errors.
