  • added autorotation for v3/text
Images like this now work in v3/text:
The goal of automatic rotation is to pick correct orientation for received images before any processing is done. The result of auto rotation looks like:
We will soon add these features to v3/latex and v3/batch as well. We implemented a very conservative rotation confidence threshold, meaning you should still try to call the API with a properly oriented image if possible!

  • v3/text general improvements
First of all, we trained our models on a larger dataset, resulting in a general accuracy increase.
Secondly, we improved the precision of predictions, at the potential cost of slightly decreasing prediction recall in some circumstances. Here is an example of an image, where previously our v3/text tried to read the bottom, cut off parts of the image:
Now, v3/text ignores these sections, resulting in a much cleaner output than before. The endpoint will still try to read everything in an image (vs the v3/latex endpoint which tries to read the main equation), but will be slightly less aggressive in reading unusual image sections in order to avoid garbage outputs.
  • chemistry diagram detection
We have added a new field in our LineData object, subtype, so that we can return more information about diagrams to API clients. Currently subtype can only be chemistry, but more diagram subtypes are coming soon.
See an example request with chemistry: https://mathpix.com/docs/ocr/examples#chemistry-diagrams.
  • added ability to create and disable new API keys to accounts.mathpix.com OCR dashboard
  • added ability to invite users (to have access to API keys, usage statistics, image results dashboard) to accounts.mathpix.com OCR dashboard

  • Skip diagrams in v3/text which caused garbage results
Yet another reason to use v3/text over v3/latex! v3/text intelligently skips diagrams!
