Extract data from print and handwritten documents using Azure Form Recognizer

Azure Gov Team

Now available in Azure Government, Form Recognizer is an AI-powered document extraction service that understands your forms, enabling you to extract text, tables, and key value pairs from your documents, whether print or handwritten.

With just a few samples, Form Recognizer tailors its understanding to your documents, both on-premises and in the cloud. Turn forms into usable data at a fraction of the time and cost, so you can focus more time acting on the information rather than compiling it. For example, you can extract data from documents and forms such as tax documents, court forms, W2s and more.
