Amazon Textract
Developer Guide

Examples

Block objects that are returned from Amazon Textract operations contain the results of text detection and text analysis operations, such as AnalyzeDocument. The following Python examples show some of the different ways that you can use Block objects. For example, you can export table information to a comma-separated values (CSV) file.

The examples use synchronous Amazon Textract operations that return all results. If you want to use asynchronous operations such as StartDocumentAnalysis, you need to change the example code to accommodate multiple batches of returned Block objects.

For examples that show you other ways to use Amazon Textract, see Other Examples.
