  • Publication number: 20190362143
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a processing unit, an extraction unit, a memory unit, a determination unit, and an assignment unit. The processing unit executes a character recognition process. The extraction unit extracts at least one area located within a predetermined range from a first area that is included in a designated image and that is designated to undergo the character recognition process. The at least one area is a second area. The memory unit stores an attribute on a per character string basis. The determination unit determines, on a basis of the attribute stored by the memory unit, an attribute corresponding to a character string recognized as one or more characters from the first area by the processing unit and a character string recognized as one or more characters from the second area by the processing unit. The assignment unit assigns the determined attribute to the designated image.
