Hi, question on the data types (string, number, date, time, integer) and subtypes (i.e. for string, no-whitespaces, alphanumeric, not-specified) in the Azure OCR form recognizer.
Do they affect what value the recognizer actually reads/returns in the JSON? i.e.
- the text value read is "email name@ example website. com", it will return that if I say the tag is String not-specified but if I say String no-whitespaces, it might return "email@example.com"
- the text value read is "13148", if I say the tag is String it will return 13148 but if I say it's Date, dmy, it might return "1/31/48"
or do they only let you read the JSON and say, XX field is a date, giving you an additional attribute to work with when using the JSON for other things?
mainly asking bc it would be great if the recognizer could remove whitespaces from email addresses - but in the tag value preview it does not seem to be doing that.
