Full Page & Zonning Workflow App

  1. 1. Presentation: Full-Page and Zoning Workflow Application Presented by: Chris Riley ABBY USA
  2. 2. Full-Page OCR + Zoning Workflow <ul><li>Image Input </li></ul><ul><li>Hotfolder </li></ul><ul><li>Scanner </li></ul><ul><li>Auto Zoning Server </li></ul><ul><li>ABBYY Runtime </li></ul><ul><li>Royalty free custom app </li></ul><ul><li>Zone Adjustment </li></ul><ul><li>Royalty free custom app </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Zoning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Verification </li></ul></ul><ul><li>OCR Server </li></ul><ul><li>ABBYY Runtime </li></ul><ul><li>Custom Zoning application </li></ul>
  3. 3. Document Types <ul><li>Input image for OCR </li></ul><ul><li>Locations of blocks and block types for input image </li></ul><ul><li>OCR results, format may vary </li></ul><ul><li>Information on character confidence, character locations, alternate characters, time OCRd, Time Verified, Station verifying, Station zoning etc. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Server Types <ul><li>Auto-Zoning </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This server will first attempt to use Document Analysis to automatically zone a document reducing the amount of time an operator spends zoning. This server will have to have an ABBYY Runtime, and running the royalty custom application. The server will generate a zones file for each input image and manage jobs by pulling from a hotfolder on the network. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>OCR </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This server will take the zones file after it’s been fine-tuned by an operator, OCR the zones accordingly and with fine-tuned settings. This server will have an ABBYY runtime and custom royalty free OCR application. It will return the OCR results and a meta statistics file. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Further Discussion Points <ul><li>Queuing? </li></ul><ul><li>Consolidation where runtimes need to be purchased and OCR maximization </li></ul><ul><li>Same or different applications can be used for zoning and verification </li></ul>
