Differences in Recognition Accuracy of Text to Be Extracted as a Photo Date
The date displayed in [Photo date] in the [Scan to Folder] window is automatically set by recognizing and extracting the date printed on a photo.
The recognition accuracy of photo date text is affected by text color, font, background, and similar.
Dates with a high level of recognition accuracy
Dates printed in an orange 7-segment font distinguishable from the background
Dates printed in orange or white text distinguishable from the background
Dates with a low level of recognition accuracy
Dates printed in fonts other than a 7-segment font, such as a digital font formed by dots
Difficult-to-read dates with text in a color that is too light or difficult to distinguish from the background
Dates with text in a color such as yellow, blue, or black
Dates written by hand
Factors other than text that affect recognition accuracy
In addition to the date text printed on a photo, recognition accuracy is affected by the following:
Recognition accuracy lowers when the size of a photo differs greatly from the following sizes.
89 × 127 mm (3.5 × 5 in.)
102 × 152 mm (4 × 6 in.)
127 × 178 mm (5 × 7 in.)
Locale (information of the country and region) of your computer
The date text may not be recognized due to incompatibility between the date format printed on the photo and your computer locale settings (country and region information).
