Identity Document Scanning product updates – November 2022

Find out what’s new in the v6 release of Identity Document Scanning, and how the updates empower your solution and delight your customers.

Here’s a quick overview of the biggest features that will be available in v6.

Extracting ID data from Arabic and Cyrillic IDs

When we say you can scan IDs across the globe, we really mean it. Our list of supported documents got richer now that we can scan IDs including Arabic and Cyrillic scripts. This fantastic new feature also covers multiscript IDs meaning that we extract data written in both Latin and Arabic data fields.

Better barcode scanning and data extraction

We’ve improved scanning accuracy for all IDs that hold a PDF417 or other barcode types. This means that the error rate is now 20% lower, which brings even cleaner and more reliable data with every scan of an identity document. 

New user instructions that lead to successful scans

More detailed instructions on how to scan identity documents, via an intro tutorial or tooltip during scanning, leading to improved success rates in ID scanning and data extraction.

In-depth error messaging for developers

You asked, we listened! With v6, you’ll get more detailed error messages regarding end-user activity, to better understand if scans should be repeated or accepted.

Easier implementation

Less code, less headaches! You can now implement basic Identity Document Scanning in a single line of code.

Our updated Identity Document Scanning product will be available through:

  • Native and cross-platform mobile SDKs
  • Self-hosted API
  • In-Browser SDK
