Grooper enhances images displayed to users throughout your workflow, removes image artifacts known to interfere with OCR, provides crisp versions for permanent archival, and analyzes page structure to assist with automated decision making downstream.
Safe and clean
Dithering and other halftone patterns are a direct result of legacy document imaging platforms poorly converting color images to black and white. These artifacts must be eliminated to prevent massive errors in OCR results, particularly with punctuation like periods and commas.
Line Detection & Removal
Lines are used all throughout standardized forms, table structures, and pages with "fill-in-the-blank" comb boxes to provide visual cues that increase legibility for readers. These lines, particularly the short, vertical ones, are commonly picked up by OCR Engines as characters. Grooper can erase these with ease.
