How passport scanner works

Scanning software automatically identifies the passport type, recognizes all text fields (OCR), machine-readable zone (MRZ), barcodes, and extracts graphic zones (signatures, fingerprints, face verification, etc.). The software independently recognizes a visual inspection zone of the passport, text fields printed in both English and national languages, and a machine-readable zone. Face matching technology of Smart ID Engine also allows you to verify the photo extracted from an MRTD document with a selfie on-device.
