Microsoft Syntex has announced several new capabilities to improve content management and discovery for Syntex pay-as-you-go customers. The major highlights include Syntex taxonomy tagging and image tagging, extended support for optical character recognition (OCR), and much more.
Microsoft Syntex is a service that uses AI and machine learning to find, organize, and classify documents in Microsoft Teams, SharePoint libraries, and OneDrive for Business. The service offers AI-powered summarization, translation, auto-assembly, and annotations incorporated into Microsoft 365 apps. Microsoft Syntex also supports backup, archiving, analytics, and management tools for documents.
First off, Microsoft announced that Syntex taxonomy tagging and image tagging capabilities are now generally available for all Syntex pay-as-you-go customers. The Syntex taxonomy tagging feature automatically tags documents with descriptive keywords. This capability should make it easier for users to search, sort, filter, and manage documents. The Syntex Image Tagging feature helps users categorize and search for specific images in SharePoint libraries, OneDrive, and embedded documents.
Microsoft Syntex pay-as-you-go customers are getting a set of capabilities that were previously only available to organizations with a SharePoint Syntex seat license. These include content query, universal annotation, accelerators, taxonomy services, content processing rules, and PDF merge/extract.
“If you’re not yet a Syntex customer, now is a particularly great time to give it a go. These services will be available as a preview through June 30, 2024,” Microsoft explained. “For Syntex pay-as-you-go customers, these capabilities will be readily available to you without taking any action or set up and without any additional charge.”
Microsoft detailed that Syntex optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities will become generally available for customers this month. The feature lets users extract printed or handwritten text from images like photographs, screenshots, and scanned documents. Microsoft has updated the Syntex optical character recognition (OCR) feature to add support for PDF and TIFF files.
Later this month, Microsoft Syntex users will be able to use the Syntex structured and freeform models. Microsoft notes that customers will be able to use their Azure subscriptions to pay for the services. If you’re interested, you can learn more about these features on Microsoft’s official blog.
