  • Publication number: 20200311883
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a first image generator and a second image generator. The first image generator generates a first image, including a predetermined ruled-line image and an inscription image, from a second sheet in a sheet group. The sheet group is obtained by stacking multiple sheets including a single first sheet and the second sheet. The first sheet has inscription information inscribed thereon. The second sheet has the inscription image corresponding to the inscription information transferred thereon and includes the ruled-line image. The second image generator generates a second image in which a surplus image is removed from the first image generated by the first image generator in accordance with a learning model that has learned to remove the surplus image different from the ruled-line image and the inscription image.

  • Publication number: 20200265265
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a recognition unit, a memory, a registration unit, and an extraction unit. The recognition unit performs recognition of one or more characters included in an image and outputs character information indicating the one or more characters. The memory stores a first specific character and a second specific character in association with each other. The first specific character has an index taking on a value lower than a predetermined value. The index indicates accuracy of the recognition performed by the recognition unit. The second specific character is output after the recognition unit performs the recognition of the first specific character. The registration unit registers at least one character or at least one character string as an extraction target.

  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20190325210
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a first designation unit, a second designation unit, a position acquisition unit, a memory, and an extraction unit. The first designation unit designates an extensive area from a first read image, the extensive area including an output area and an object area. The second designation unit designates the output area from the designated extensive area. The position acquisition unit acquires positional information regarding the extensive area with respect to the first read image and positional information regarding the output area with respect to the extensive area. The memory stores the positional information regarding the extensive area and the positional information regarding the output area. The extraction unit identifies a position of the extensive area in a second read image in a format identical to a format of the first read image on a basis of the positional information regarding the extensive area stored by the memory.
