Amazon Textract is a fully managed machine learning service that makes it easy to extract text and data from virtually any document. Amazon Textract offers you both synchronous and asynchronous APIs to choose based on the fit for each use case. With the asynchronous APIs, you can retrieve the extracted information using the GetDocumentTextDetection or the GetDocumentAnalysis APIs. Today, we are introducing an additional option to direct the Textract output to your own Amazon S3 buckets. With this new option, you can specify the Amazon S3 bucket name, and also a prefix to be added to the output file. You can still choose to use the Get APIs if you prefer. This new Amazon S3 output option provides you with greater flexibility to integrate Amazon Textract into your broader technical architectures.
