What is a semi-structured form?
A perfect example of a semi-structured form is an invoice. While invoices are fairly uniform in their structure, there is enough room for variation that every single invoice that an organization receives is not necessarily identical to the one preceding it. Semi-structured forms are useful ways of communicated similar types of information, and they conveniently lend themselves to automatic processing.
What is semi-structured form OCR?
OCR software for semi-structured forms goes a step beyond regular OCR. While standard OCR simply recognizes text characters, OCR software that is designed to process forms can also extract the text from the forms and organize it in a format that is more convenient for the user. Semi-structured forms can be processed with the help of document automation software, which uses OCR but has more advanced capabilities.
