Performing Text Recognition on the Characters of a Business Card or a Receipt on an Item-by-Item Basis Again

When the document type of a content data record is "Business Cards" or "Receipts", you can mark a character string with a frame in a scanned image on an item-by-item basis and perform text recognition for each item.

When an item in meta information for [Business card information] or [Receipt information] in the content data record view is not correct, mark the corresponding character string with a frame in the image that is displayed in [View] and perform text recognition for the item again.

Items made up of characters in a business card or receipt, which you can perform text recognition on again, are as follows:
