The functionality of the Passport OCR API begins with a thorough examination of the text present in a passport image. This examination involves the systematic division of the page into segments containing tables or lines of text. These segments are then further dissected into individual words and characters. This intricate process is the key to extracting vital information from the Machine-Readable Zone (MRZ) found on passports. Within the MRZ, crucial passport details like the holder's name, nationality, passport number, date of birth, and expiration date can be reliably identified and extracted.
It includes intelligent error correction algorithms, automatically rectifying minor errors in OCR results, ensuring accurate data extraction even from slightly damaged passports. Passports, as travel documents, can undergo wear and tear, leading to issues such as smudged ink or minor damages to the document's pages. In scenarios where a conventional OCR system might falter, the Smart Error Correction feature comes to the rescue.
The API can enhance the quality of passport images, making them more suitable for OCR processing, especially useful for scanned or older passport documents. The Passport OCR API excels in handling challenging image conditions, such as noise or blurriness, to elevate the accuracy of OCR outcomes.
It adapts to different languages and dialects, allowing it to recognize and process passport information from a wide range of linguistic backgrounds. This remarkable capability allows the API to adapt to various languages and dialects, ensuring it can effectively recognize and process passport information originating from a wide spectrum of linguistic backgrounds.
Users have the flexibility to define and extract specific passport data fields according to their unique requirements, tailoring the OCR process to their needs. With this feature, users can define and extract specific passport data fields that align with their unique requirements and use cases.
The API supports recognition through multiple input methods, including scanned images, photos taken with mobile devices, or even live video input, enhancing its versatility. The versatility provided by Multimodal Recognition ensures that the API can seamlessly integrate into a wide array of applications and scenarios.
Users can process multiple passport documents simultaneously, making it efficient for applications that require batch processing, such as airport check-ins or border control.
