From now on, BlinkID:

  • Gets barcode data, face image and cropped document image (both sides) from all AAMVA-compliant documents. Even if the US driver license or ID card that end-users need to scan isn’t on our supported documents list, you will get all of the above
  • Extracts English gender values (M/F), as well as localized Spanish (H/M) from MRZ found on Mexican identity documents
  • Converts the Republic of China calendar (Chinese: 中華民國曆 or Minguo calendar) and the Islamic calendar (Arabic: ٱلتَّقْوِيم ٱلْهِجْرِيّ‎ or Hijri calendar) to the Gregorian calendar
  • Completes date of expiry and/or date of issue when they are written in partial form, for example:
    • Date of expiry
      2020 turns into 31.12.2020
      03.2021 turns into 31.03.2021.
    • Date of issue
      2020 turns into 01.01.2020
      03.2021.turns into 01.03.2021.

Please check Github (native & cross platforms/In-browser SDK/C SDK) and Docker Hub (Self-hosted API) for even more details.

For the best scanning and data extraction experience, please update your BlinkID to the latest version.
