FEATURES

Recognition features

Snip can very accurately convert images of simple and complicated printed math, text, and tables.

It can also convert images of simple handwritten math, text, and tables.

recognized formula 2

\Gamma _ { \epsilon } ( x ) = [ 1- e ^ { - 2\pi \epsilon } ] ^ { 1- x } \prod _ { n = 0} ^ { \infty } \frac { 1- \operatorname{exp} ( - 2\pi \epsilon ( n + 1) ) } { 1- \operatorname{exp} ( - 2\pi \epsilon ( x + n ) ) }

recognized formula 1

\left( \begin{array} c t ^ { \prime } \\ x ^ { \prime } \\ y ^ { \prime } \\ z ^ { \prime } \end{array} \right) = \left( \begin{array} { c c c c } { \gamma } & { - \gamma \beta } & { 0 } & { 0 } \\ { - \gamma \beta } & { \gamma } & { 0 } & { 0 } \\ { 0 } & { 0 } & { 1 } & { 0 } \\ { 0 } & { 0 } & { 0 } & { 1 } \end{array} \right) \left( \begin{array} c t \\ x \\ y \\ z \end{array} \right)

recognized formula 3

\ell ( \theta ) = \sum _ { i = 1} ^ { m } \operatorname{log} p ( x ; \theta )

recognized formula 4

6 \mathrm { CO } _ { 2 } + 6 \mathrm { H } _ { 2 } \mathrm { O } \rightarrow \mathrm { C } _ { 6 } \mathrm { H } _ { 12 } \mathrm { O } _ { 6 } + 6 \mathrm { O } _ { 2 }

recognized text 2

We can also read large chunks of text that contain multiple lines. This is really helpful for when you want to extract a chunk of text from a PDF because you are unable to copy the source text directly.

recognized text 2

% We even support basic tables!
\begin{tabular}{l|l}
Hyperparameter & Value \\
\hline Horizon (T) & 2048 \\
Adam stepsize & \(3 \times 10^{-4}\) \\
Num. epochs & 10 \\
Minibatch size & 64 \\
Discount \((\gamma)\) & 0.99 \\
GAE parameter \((\lambda)\) & 0.95
\end{tabular}

You can find more examples of images that Snip can digitize accurately in the User Guide.
