    Image Transcription

    Accurately and efficiently identify and extract text from image data to train computer vision applications

What is
Image Transcription?

Image transcription is the process of identifying and extracting text contained in an image (e.g., photograph of a receipt, business cards etc). High quality image transcriptions are essential for training machine learning models based on image recognition such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
