I'm currently evaluating the Cloud OCR product and have been generally pleased with the results.
However, I've experienced one significant issue which I was hoping you could shed some light on/look into. See this particular image (http://i.imgur.com/0vTsy.jpg) and the xml that was returned for it (http://ge.tt/4WPV8MN/v/0 - note I've trimmed some bits out, so the xml might not be valid, but everything you need to see is there). For the item "2 Basmati Rice", it seems that the corresponding price item ("6.00") has been missed entirely. We can't find it anywhere in the results. Everything else seems to be present.
Why is this, and how might we be able to fix it/ensure something like this doesn't happen repeatedly in future queries?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
Edit: realized I should probably indicate what settings I ran the OCR with. Just copying and pasting the request url below for expediency:
I should also note that the linked image was cropped a bit, but the images we're sending over are max quality stills from an iPhone 4 (AVCaptureSession), so 2592x1936px.
The results can be improved by implementing the following steps:
Try to capture better images:
Modify processing settings:
