Using Autobahn DX’s cloud OCR steps, we can make use of Google Vision AI’s ability to perform ICR and combine that with Autobahn DX’s ability to generate a full PDF based of the data. Something which Google Vision AI cannot do on its own.
With the 2 products working in tandem, we can generate PDFs with accurate ICR on handwritten text and other hard to read pages that might confound other OCR engines from both PDF documents and images alike.
