Hi @Liveasurheartsay,

This is complicated text so this will not work in the free version of OCR engine. So try with any licensed OCR tool like Abbyy, GCP Vision AI and Azure Computer vision etc…

You can try yourself in the following link

As @aanandsanraj said, you can use the API’s and also you can take a look at Abbyy Flexicapture too, for Intelligent OCR

Hope this may helps you
