AA2iA TextReader recognises full printed and cursive handwritten text

A2iA has unveiled  its newest software toolkit, A2iA TextReader, which features a new inhouse developed technology for full text transcription. Developed by A2iA’s in-house R&D Team, the same  engine can be used for printed and cursive text recognition, enabling all types of documents be transformed into searchable and editable formats – without the use of a dictionary.

 “A2iA TextReader is a powerful tool that will change the way the market utilises recognition technology,” said Jean-Louis Fages, A2iA President and Chairman of the Board.

“By enabling full text recognition without a dictionary, of any type of printed or handwritten data, users will see higher levels of automation and quicker access to information across the organization.”

A2iA TextReader does not require any customisation, even for cursive handwriting. Rather than combining several OCR & ICR recognition engines, A2iA TextReader boasts a new approach to full-text transcription. Users gain complete processing control over the document recognition settings and results, as the engine can return both a literal transcription and data extraction from any format of information.
