Optical Character Recognition

Zia Optical Character Recognition electronically detects textual characters in images or digital documents, and converts them into machine-encoded text. Zia OCR can recognize text in 9 international languages and 10 Indian languages. You can check the list of languages and language codes from the API documentation

Note:Catalyst does not store any of the files you upload in its systems. The files you upload are used for one-time processing only. They are not used for ML model training purposes either. Catalyst components are fully compliant with all applicable data protection and privacy laws.

You must specify the path to the image or document file that needs to be processed for OCR. The response will also include a confidence score, which defines the accuracy of the processing, in addition to the recognized text.

Allowed file formats: .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .tiff, .bmp, .pdf

File size limit: 20 MB

You must pass the file path, model type, and languages as arguments to the extractOpticalCharacters() method. However, the model type and language values are optional. By default, it is passed as the OCR model type, and the languages are automatically detected if they are not specified.

The zia reference used below is defined in the component instance page. The promise returned here is resolved to a JSON object.

let fs = require('fs'); //Define the file stream for file attachments let result = await zia.extractOpticalCharacters( fs.createReadStream('/Users/amelia-421/Desktop/MyDoc.jpg'), { language:'eng', modelType: 'OCR' }) ; console.log(result);

A sample response that you will receive is shown below. The response is the same for both versions of Node.js.
