Amazon Textract is a managed machine learning service that automatically extracts text, handwriting, and data from any document or image. We regularly improve the underlying machine learning models based on customer feedback to provide even better accuracy. Today, we are pleased to announce quality enhancements to our Forms feature available via the AnalyzeDocument API.

The latest Forms feature update improves key value pair extraction accuracy for a wide variety of forms such as mortgage applications, insurance forms, tax forms, immigration forms, and more. Customers in industries such as insurance, healthcare, and banking who utilize these documents in their business processes will automatically see the benefits of this update when they use Textract’s Forms extraction feature.

This update will be available in US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris), and the AWS GovCloud (US-East, US-West) Regions.
