Hello All,

We are facing one issue when we try to scan duffle bag.The main reason behind that the text color on the bag which are embroidered are same as bag's color.so it can not scan exact text which is written on the bag.

To get actual idea I have attached image.In attached image we want to scan bag's id (D1 150491).Let me know if we have to do extra effort to scan this type of image.

NOTE: Apart from this type of image this sdk works well.

Hello! As you correctly pointed out the main reason of such recognition bahavior is the low contrast between text and background. Text is lost from the image after the binarization step, so it will not be recognized.
