PDF "Forms Processing" ocr missing text


Very new to this functionality.

I just finished developing a model (with 7 samples used to train) of a Sales Order (SO)received in a PDF format.

1.  During the training the OCR missed several simple numbers/characters in table line items and was unable to select them manually

2.  During testing (see below) it seems that the OCR was also unable to recognize all numbers and text in table.


Is there any way for me to debug why this is happening?  I also, performed a search on the PDF and it appears that the form recognizes the simple text/numbers missed by the Azure ORC.


Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @GusG,


Thanks for sharing about this.


Today the OCR engine we use in AI Builder form processign can at times have a hard time recognizing single characters in documents. This seems to be the issue in this case.


We will be switching form processing to a newest, more robust OCR engine in July that will be able to handle this.
