New Features




  • DocSight Verifier




DocSight OCR supports a new add-on feature, DocSight Verifier. DocSight Verifier is a browser-based application to verify data extracted from scanned documents, and provides a list of files containing unrecognizable, or suspect, characters you can change.Using DocSight OCR with data capture, digitally scan your documents, then run DocSight Verifier to search the documents for unrecognizable characters. DocSight Verifier creates a list of files, noting which have suspect characters and need verification. You can then open the files and manually correct the suspect characters, or confirm that the suspect characters are correct.




  • Enhanced multiple page support




DocSight OCR multiple page was enhanced to extract data spanning more than one page into a single row or record. For example, say you are capturing data from a multiple-page bill where the address data field starts on page 1, but carries over to page 2. OCR with data capture now recognizes the data on the second page belongs to page 1.  Additionally, multiple page support no longer requires using a header (field names obtained from the template).
