Multiple languages can be selected for images with two or more languages present.
Please ask if your desired language isn’t listed and we’ll see if we can add support.
Supported languages are spread across two endpoints, call the list languages endpoint to see which language is accessible from each endpoint.
Currently supported input file-types;
TIFF, JPEG, PNG, GIF, WebP - (PDF coming soon).
There is a 7MB max file size and the API is currently limited to a 30 second request time. This is more than enough for most use cases. The larger the file and the more text there is, the longer the processing and response time will be. To ensure we can reliably transcribe your images, please test with your most challenging input (file size and character count) to ensure this service is right for your needs.
An endpoint that will support very large payloads is under development.
Currently supported output types;
PDF (of the supplied image with selectable & searchable text overlay)
HTML (hOCR bounding box and text position data)
