Hi, I’m using the UiPath Studio Community 2019.5.0 Edition and this is a question regarding the quality of output I’m getting from the Microsoft Azure Computer Vision OCR activity in UiPath. I have a project that requires reading text (both printed and handwritten) from jpeg images of forms that have been filled out by hand (basically photographs of the forms).
While testing it on the Azure website (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/services/cognitive-services/computer-vision/), I’ve gotten almost 90% of all printed and handwritten text accurately outputted. Since UiPath has the Microsoft Azure Computer Vision OCR, I tested it but was surprised to see that the output was of poor quality… in many cases not even 10% of the handwritten text got outputted correctly or at all. I was just wondering if there is a reason for this, and if I was doing anything wrong. I wish I could provide samples of the outputs but the forms are confidential, so am not able to.
I’ve checked all the other Cloud Vision OCR activities as well. ABBY was marginally better, but I am primarily wondering why the Azure website’s output and the UiPath activity’s output could have such a big difference in quality.
Has anyone else faced this?
