Text field recognition right after dashed lines

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.

Blockquote sorry, file uploading requires karma >60

Trying again with markdown...

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.

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.
