            Analyzing a Specific Page of a PDF with Amazon Textract
            Asked 2021-May-28 at 03:55

            I am using Amazon Textract to extract text from PDF files. For some of these documents, I want to be able to specify the pages from which data is to be extracted, rather than having to go through the entire thing. Is this possible? If so, how do I do it? I cannot seem to find an answer in the docs.



            Answered 2021-May-28 at 03:55

            I do not believe Textract offers this feature, but you can easily implement it programatically. Since your tags mention python, I'll suggest a way to do this using python. You can use a library like PyPDF2 which lets you specify which pages you want to extract and creates a new pdf with just those pages.

            How to get the font style from an image with text?
            Asked 2021-May-18 at 14:40

            I am using the Amazon Textract API, through AWS' Python API, to extract text from a document (pdf or jpg). I do get the text and coordinates of its bounding box, but I would also love to have the font type (only the major ones needed: Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Calibri, Times New Roman + a few others).

            Does anyone have a solution to get that piece of data?

            The best solution may be a package, which accepts a small image, returns the font type name, and which I can run on my server. An external API would most likely be too costly (money and time-wise), as I have to run it 100+ times in a second.

            Amazon Textract JSON missing some pages
            Asked 2021-Apr-23 at 16:32

            I am using amazon textract to analyse pdf documents using the async APIs of amazon textract. After I perform the operations, in some cases the output Textract JSON is missing a few pages. What is the reason for missing a few files?

            Ex: In this document, it has 4 pages.

            But the extraction information is only available for 2 pages.

            This is the document information



            Answered 2021-Apr-23 at 16:32

            It's the NextToken . When NextToken is populated you need to make another call to get the next segment of results. When NextToken is null, you have all the results.

            I'm using CLI but

            aws textract get-document-analysis --next-token FLpA6... --job-id 12345....

            Parsing multipage tables into CSV files with AWS Textract
            Asked 2021-Apr-14 at 18:46

            I'm a total AWS newbie trying to parse tables of multi page files into CSV files with AWS Textract. I tried using AWS's example in this page however when we are dealing with a multi-page file the response = client.analyze_document(Document={'Bytes': bytes_test}, FeatureTypes=['TABLES']) breaks since we need asynchronous processing in those cases, as you can see in the documentation here. The correct function to call would be client.start_document_analysis and after running it retrieve the file using client.get_document_analysis(JobId).

            So, I adapted their example using this logic instead of using client.analyze_document function, the adapted piece of code looks like this:



            Answered 2021-Apr-14 at 18:46

            Consider use two different lambdas. One for call textract and one for process the result.

            Please read this document


            And check this repository


            To process the JSON you can use this sample as reference https://github.com/aws-samples/amazon-textract-response-parser or use it directly as library.

            Amazon Textract currently supports PNG, JPEG, and PDF formats. Looks like you are using PDF.

            Once you have a valid format, you can use the Python S3 API to read the data of the object in the S3 object. Once you read the object, you can pass the byte array to the analyze_document method. TO see a full example of how to use the AWS SDK for Python (Boto3) with Amazon Textract to detect text, form, and table elements in document images.


            Try following that code example to see if your issue is resolved.

            "Could you provide some clearance on the params to use"

            I just ran the Java V2 example and it works perfecly. In this example, i am using a PNG file located in a specific Amazon S3 bucket.

            Here are the parameters that you need:

            Make sure when implementing this in Python, you set the same parameters.

            AWS Collaboration on a Project
            Asked 2021-Mar-10 at 00:45

            So, I am working on a project where I will need to use tons of services that AWS has to offer like S3, EC2, Route53, Textract, RDS and some more. However, during the course of the project, I am going to be collaborating on the project with my team.

            I know I would set up an IAM User for everyone on the team. But, how do I assure that everyone has access to the services mentioned above so that we can work on the project together?



            Answered 2021-Mar-10 at 00:45

            Great question. Make sure you have one root account and enable MFA on it. Then go to IAM and create a user yourself. Try to change the 12321312.signin.aws.com link to yourTeamName.signin.aws.com for easy logins too.

            Once you create a user for yourself, go to the side on IAM and click groups. Create a new group called "admins". Click next and then attach the administratorAccess policy. AWS Img 1 Then click next. Then save it. Then click on your group, and then click "add users to group" and select the user account for yourself that you just made.

            Now, log out of the root account and log into your name@projectNameRootAccount and you can do everything that you did on your root. Only difference is you are not coding on your root and it is safe from hackers.

            Next.... to make it extremely simple.... You could just create a user under IAM for each of them and add them to your admins group.

            Best practice would be to give them less privileges but if it is an informal thing.... not a big deal. I would consider clicking on their IAM names from time to time and click on the access advisor tab to see what services they are actually using. If they are only using "dev" type things, you can see that pretty clearly within a week or so and then you can go and create a new group for "devs" and then just give them the policies you see under "access advisor (when you click on their IAM name)".

            Then you can take them out of the admins group and give them the access that they truly need.

            Thanks and good luck with AWS. It can be complicated haha.
