Using Python 3.x and Google Cloud Vision API to OCR scanned documents to extract structured data

Using Python 3 + Google Cloud Vision API's OCR to extract text from photos and scanned documents

Just a quickie test in Python 3 (using Requests) to see if Google Cloud Vision can be used to effectively OCR a scanned data table and preserve its structure, in the way that products such as ABBYY FineReader can OCR an image and provide Excel-ready output.

The short answer: No. While Cloud Vision provides bounding polygon coordinates in its output, it doesn't provide it at the word or region level, which would be needed to then calculate the data delimiters.

On the other hand, the OCR quality is pretty good, if you just need to identify text anywhere in an image, without regards to its physical coordinates. I've included two examples:

10 terms to help you better understand JavaScript

10 JavaScript Terms You Should Know

From currying to closures there are quite a number of special words used in JavaScript. These will not only help you increase your vocabulary but also better understand JavaScript. Special terms are normally found in documentation and technical articles. But some of them like closures are pretty standard things to know about. Knowing what the word itself means can help you know the concept it's named for better.

  1. Arity
  2. Anonymous
  3. Closure
  4. Currying
  5. Hoisting
  6. Mutation

The keystore password on Java keystore files is utterly pointless. You can reset it without knowing it, as shown by this code. Note that private keys are still secure, as far as I know. The JKS implementation is copyright Casey Marshall (, and the original source is available at I've in…

public class ChangePassword
private final static JKS j = new JKS();
public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
