Trainer Buddy


NOTE: As of now, Trainer Buddy could be invoked only by going into IntelliBuddies installation folder and executing the application TrainerBuddy.exe. This is an alpha release of Trainer Buddy.

Trainer Buddy is one of the components of IntelliBuddies. You can use Trainer Buddy to create document processing models from document templates. The trained document processing models can then be used as part of our process automation so that our Buddies can recognize and extract data from the documents automatically.

Trainer Buddy uses OCR Engine to extract text from images while being trained to generate a document processing model. Currently, only Tesseract OCR Engine is supported, and it comes ready to use without the need to install it.
