A2iA FieldReader incorporates Intelligent Word Recognition (IWR) technology, reducing spelling and character recognition errors. Instead of recognizing words character-by-character, IWR matches entire words and phrases against a user-defined dictionary.
The A2iA Zone Locator using FieldReader recognition recognizes information in the following fields in different document types:
constrained fields as comb and box fields (machine print, capital letters).
unconstrained fields as free-form, cursive, and hand print.
handwritten fields in addresses as first and last name, street number, street, postal code, city, and country. FieldReader uses postal dictionaries (ex: USPS, Médiapost) for the recognition.
