A Pdf Form Data Extractor 2.1
A-PDF Form Data Extractor is a simple utility program that lets you batch export PDF form data to CSV or XML file format. It provide a visual form fields extraction rule editor to verify and define what form fields to be gathered conveniently and automatically.

Form Recognizer uses advanced machine learning technology to identify documents, detect and extract information from forms and documents, and return the extracted data in a structured JSON output. With Form Recognizer, you can use document analysis models, pre-built/pre-trained, or your trained standalone custom models.
Custom models now include custom classification models for scenarios where you need to identify the document type prior to invoking the extraction model. Classifier models are available starting with the 2023-02-28-preview API. A classification model can be paired with a custom extraction model to analyze and extract fields from forms and documents specific to your business to create a document processing solution. Standalone custom extraction models can be combined to create composed models.
Custom document models can be one of two types, custom template or custom form and custom neural or custom document models. The labeling and training process for both models is identical, but the models differ as follows:
To create a custom extraction model, label a dataset of documents with the values you want extracted and train the model on the labeled dataset. You only need five examples of the same form or document type to get started.
The custom template or custom form model relies on a consistent visual template to extract the labeled data. Variances in the visual structure of your documents affect the accuracy of your model. Structured forms such as questionnaires or applications are examples of consistent visual templates.
Your training set consists of structured documents where the formatting and layout are static and constant from one document instance to the next. Custom template models support key-value pairs, selection marks, tables, signature fields, and regions. Template models and can be trained on documents in any of the supported languages. For more information, see custom template models.
To confirm that your training documents present a consistent visual template, remove all the user-entered data from each form in the set. If the blank forms are identical in appearance, they represent a consistent visual template.
The custom neural (custom document) model uses deep learning models and base model trained on a large collection of documents. This model is then fine-tuned or adapted to your data when you train the model with a labeled dataset. Custom neural models support structured, semi-structured, and unstructured documents to extract fields. Custom neural models currently support English-language documents. When you're choosing between the two model types, start with a neural model to determine if it meets your functional needs. See neural models to learn more about custom document models.
Neural models support documents that have the same information, but different page structures. Examples of these documents include United States W2 forms, which share the same information, but may vary in appearance across companies. Neural models currently only support English text.
To extract the data fields, you supply a PDF file name. If the file is encrypted, you need to supply the password. The library will open the file and read its main structure. Next, it will read the interactive data fields. The result is an array of fields containing the field names and user entered data. You can serialize this array to an XML file.
Start the program. Press Open PDF File button. Use the Open file dialog to open a PDF file containing interactive data fields. The demo program will display the number of pages in your document. The number of indirect objects. The number of interactive fields of data in your document. And the number of digital signatures. Press Save Form Data and the program will save it to an XML file with the same name as your PDF. The XML file will be displayed by Notepad.
The PDF document form data is stored in an array of PdfFieldData elements. Within the PDF documents, these fields are organized in hierarchical structure. The index field (zero based) is an index into the PdfFieldData array. The Parent field is the index of the parent of the current field. Parent field of -1 indicates a root field. You can navigate from any field back to the root.
The next 4 fields are defined in the PDF specification manual page 675 table 8.69. If the field Type (Key=FT) is blank, it is not a data field. It is part of the tree hierarchy. There are 4 types of data fields: Button (Btn), Text (Tx), Choice (Ch) and Signature (Sig). Each field has a name (Key=T) and an alternate- name (Key=TU) and a value (Key=V). The name and the alternate name are assigned by the PDF document creator. The value is entered by the user of the document. If the value is an empty string, the user did not enter a value. The values for buttons and choices are taken from a built-in list assigned by the document creator. The user selects the value from the list. If a choice field has multi-choice capability, the selected choices will be separated by end of line. Signature fields are handled differently than the other types of fields. Signature case is described below:
The Make Accessible action walks you through the steps required to make a PDF accessible. It prompts to address accessibility issues, such as a missing document description or title. It looks for common elements that need further action, such as scanned text, form fields, tables, and images. You can run this action on all PDFs except dynamic forms (XFA documents) or portfolios.
In an accessible PDF, all form fields are tagged and are a part of the document structure. In addition, you can use the tool tip form filed property to provide the user with information or to provide instructions.
WCAG 2.1 success criteria are written as testable statements that are not technology-specific. Guidance about satisfying the success criteria in specific technologies, as well as general information about interpreting the success criteria, is provided in separate documents. See Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Overview for an introduction and links to WCAG technical and educational material.
WCAG 2.1 extends Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 [WCAG20], which was published as a W3C Recommendation December 2008. Content that conforms to WCAG 2.1 also conforms to WCAG 2.0. The WG intends that for policies requiring conformance to WCAG 2.0, WCAG 2.1 can provide an alternate means of conformance. The publication of WCAG 2.1 does not deprecate or supersede WCAG 2.0. While WCAG 2.0 remains a W3C Recommendation, the W3C advises the use of WCAG 2.1 to maximize future applicability of accessibility efforts. The W3C also encourages use of the most current version of WCAG when developing or updating Web accessibility policies.
To comment, file an issue in the W3C WCAG GitHub repository. The Working Group requests that public comments be filed as new issues, one issue per discrete comment. It is free to create a GitHub account to file issues. If filing issues in GitHub is not feasible, send email to email@example.com (comment archive). Comments received on the WCAG 2.1 Recommendation cannot result in changes to this version of the guidelines, but may be addressed in errata or future versions of WCAG. The Working Group does not plan to make formal responses to comments. A list of issues filed as well as Archives of the AG WG mailing list discussions are publicly available, and future work undertaken by the Working Group may address comments received on this document.
