The Challenges of Extracting Data from Receipts

Extracting data from any scanned documents like receipts, especially if it is images, can be challenging for several reasons.

First, receipts come in all shapes and sizes.

They vary dramatically between merchants, and locations and over time. Some are neatly organized while others are cluttered. Certain receipts contain only the bare essentials, while others list dozens of line items. This high degree of variability makes it difficult for software to identify and extract the relevant details.

Another issue is that receipts often contain handwritten notes or are printed in non-standard fonts that can be hard to decipher.

Some receipts may be faded, crumpled, or torn, obscuring important information. Certain characters or entire lines of text could be missing altogether.

Receipts may also include abbreviations, shorthand, or merchant-specific terminology that requires context to interpret.

The location of key data points like totals and tax amounts can be inconsistent between receipts. All these factors pose significant challenges for an automated system trying to extract meaningful insights from receipts.
