Getting Started with Document Information Extraction UI Application
The previous beta version of Document Information Extraction (DOX) UI and its components are now GA. Both Document Information Extraction (DOX) and Document Information Extraction UI are now available on EU10, EU11, JP10, and US10, while Trial is currently available on EU10 and US10 only.
This Document Information Extraction UI is a very handy tool for visualizing machine learning extracted header fields and line items of your uploaded pdf documents.
The good thing here there is NO additional pricing – if you already have an active Document Information Extraction (API) service instance, you can get this Document Information Extraction UI application for FREE!

Using DOX Trial UI application is pretty straightforward just under 3 steps:
1. Upload PDF document (make sure the selected document type is tally with the document you want to upload).

What I liked about this DOX UI application is that you can perform correction on the extraction results, be it on header fields and on line item columns fields by editing and selecting words on PDF preview.
