Computer Character Recognition, commonly known as Optical Character Recognition (OCR), is a key technology that utilises optical technology and computer technology to read the text printed or written on paper and return it in the form of text to achieve high-speed text entry.
ADVANCE OCR, developed independently by ADVANCE.AI, is widely used in ID document recognition and business form recognition. It also provides mobile-OCR quality inspection services. ADVANCE OCR wins the sound reputation by its quick, high-accuracy and reliable technology features from Asia to the global market.

In India, ADVANCE ID Document Recognition optimises and localises OCR service to recognise Indian ID cards and gain a competitive edge through superior and highly accurate OCR technology.
Difficulties of Indian Documents OCR
Multiple document versions: According to the feedback from Indian colleagues and market research, there are many versions of AADHAAR and PAN cards, which is widely used in India, with five standard versions of PAN and more than a dozen versions of AADHAAR.
Low image quality: India's Internet development is significantly different from China's. India skipped the PC Internet era, entered the mobile Internet era directly, and became the fastest-growing smartphone market globally. Due to the great disparity between the rich and poor, Indians are more concerned about "cost performance" and "free of charge", thus the $50-$250 smartphones occupy a large proportion. Together with the general equipment and environment of Indian users, the quality of images taken and uploaded by users is poor.
