I am having trouble getting text fields displayed right after dashed lines to be correctly recognized. For example, on the attached image, the text inside the red rectangle cannot be recognized: alt text

The text reads: "1 218 GASOLINA COMUM - Bico 16 47,285L x2,599 F1 122,84G"

Is there any way to improve this text field detection?

I tried textType=typewriter param. but that didn't change anything.

You could use some third-party image hosting or just write an email to the service support address which you will find on the right of your service dashboard when you log in to http://cloud.ocrsdk.com and attach the file.

Thanks for you time and on looking at this.

Here is the link: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0ByERNHFnfYRNX3NrWF9ITXhvV3c

You may need to download in order to better look at the details.

At this moment this is just beyond our OCR engine capabilities - it doesn't expect dashes to be so close to the letters and so completely fails to recognize the text on that line. We'll file an improvement request for this scenario.
