OCR Technology Features for Asian Languages

by sol-admin

OCR is a technology that converts the characters in an image into digital characters that can be recognized by a computer. Recently, it has been used in combination with various services because it permanently stores printed materials and enables content retrieval to make work efficient. The main leading companies are mainly from global companies such as Google, but the accuracy of recognition rates in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese, which are Asian languages, is still in the process of development.

Akuodigital, Asia’s largest digital center for electronic documents, found this issue as an opportunity to focus on improving the AI-OCR recognition rates. Unlike English, which requires only 24 letters of the alphabet, Hangul, as one example of Asian languages, is a complex structure with more than 2,450 basic combinations, so various industry-specific data is required to read up to handwritten characters. Akuodigital has been able to increase the recognition rate of the AI-OCR engine by utilizing sufficient AI-OCR learning data because it electronically digitizes data from various industries of more than 300 customers that have accumulated over 6 years and more than 100 million pieces of data every year.
