Training ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices

The quality of data capture can be improved by training ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices. Users can train the program either prior to or while processing documents.

Training is available only for the following kinds of images and in the following cases:

  • Images on which fields cannot be reliably detected by the pre-configured Document Definition.
  • The user needs to extracted data from fields not defined in the default Document Definitions.

When training may be required

How training works

ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices can be trained either by the administrator or by operators with sufficient permissions. To train the program, the user needs to add document images to the working batch, which will then be automatically recognized and submitted for verification. Once the user verifies the results and corrects field locations where required, the documents will be added to the training batch used for the given document variant. When the program has a sufficient number of documents for the document variant, training will begin automatically. The program will use the knowledge obtained through training to recognize all future documents that belong to this document variant.

If an operator fails to achieve a sufficient degree of accuracy through training, the administrator can Open Field Extraction Training Batches and continue training the program himself. The administrator additionally can:

  • Add or remove document images used for training.
  • Create new training batches.
  • Add document images that will not be used for training, but will be used when testing the trained FlexiLayout variant.
  • Export the trained FlexiLayout variant to ABBYY FlexiLayout Studio or import another FlexiLayout from ABBYY FlexiLayout Studio.

Once the desired degree of accuracy is achieved, the administrator can prohibit operator training for the given document variant.
