Have you already tried the textExtraction profile for your images? This profile is suitable for extracting all text from the input image. My results are below (there are only a few recognition errors, the extra characters are due to the colored background of the card):

It is recommended to take a photo of the area of interest without other objects and colored background. Also there should be enough light (preferably daylight). Please refer to the Best Practices section where you can find our tips how to take a picture to achieve the best recognition results.

Simply add profile=textExtraction in the ProcessingSettings.java file in the line 6:

return String.format("language=%s&profile=textExtraction&exportFormat=%s", language, outputFormat);
