Runs an invoice capture task. Multiple files can be specified in the request.

You can use any of your applications to process the document. To change the document processing application, use the Authentication header based on the appropriate application identifier and token while running the task.

Note: It is important to correctly specify the region from which you expect to receive invoices. ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices Cloud can process invoices that originate from a number of different countries. It also supports a wide range of languages (see the Specification section for details). However, applications feature a predefined set of processing rules, keywords, and other country-specific settings that are applied once the program has identified the country of the invoiced business unit. Thus, using the correct language improves recognition quality significantly.
