  • Patent number: 11190658
    Abstract: An image reading apparatus determines an inclination amount corresponding to an inclination angle of a leading edge of an original document in a conveyance direction, and determines the length of the original document in the conveyance direction. The image reading apparatus sets a first value as a set value in a case that the length of the original document is a first length and sets a second value larger than the first value as the set value in a case that the length of the original document is a second length shorter than the first length. If the inclination amount is smaller than the set value, inclination correction for correcting the image represented by the image data is performed such that the inclination amount is reduced, and if the inclination amount is larger than the set value, the inclination correction is not performed.

  • Publication number: 20210072909
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus according to this invention, upon acquiring target data, computes an evaluation value between the target data and each piece of representative data. The information processing apparatus determines, for each piece of representative data, whether the evaluation value computed between the representative data and the target data satisfies a predetermined relationship with a threshold related to the representative data. When it is determined that the evaluation value computed between the target data and certain representative data satisfies the predetermined relationship with the threshold related to the representative data, the information processing apparatus stores the target data in a storage area related to the representative data. The information processing apparatus updates the threshold related to each piece of representative data.
