Unleash the Power of Azure:Creating a Form Recognizer in 5 steps.


In this article, we will see how to create one of the most used cognitive services in Azure, which is Azure form recognizer,

in order to create a form recognizer, follow the steps below.

Step 1. Log in to the Azure portal at https://portal.azure.com using your credential.


Step 2. In the window, click on +create resource, and a new window appears. Type create storage account on the search bar and click search.

  • After the resource group is created, navigate to the resource tab.
  • Where the API endpoints and the access keys can be found for the form recognizer.

Step 3. Train a custom model in the Form recognizer

  • prepare a set of documents given as samples to train your module.
  • Generally, there are two ways to train a custom model: 
    • Labeled data: 
    • Unlabeled data with pre-built models: 
  • now you have to train the model by feeding the sample data; remember to label them 
  • the more images you train, the more accurate your module will become.

Step 4. Analyzing the module

  • After successfully training the module, you now have to analyze the module.
  • Here you can integrate using the API endpoints and access keys as told in Step 3
  • An API can be used in analyzing the document.

Step 5. Finally, you can now integrate with the application

  • The extracted data can be used as per your requirements.
  • Here, we can use this and integrate the form recognizer with your application, 
    Form Recognizer
  • Remember to refer to the official documentation part, which may give you more insights.


Microsoft has a lot of cognitive services; in this article, we have created a Form recognizer, step by step integration process; I hope this is useful; good Luck.
