Azure Form Recognizer pricing

Accelerate information extraction from documents

Form Recognizer learns the structure of your forms to intelligently extract text and data. It ingests text from forms, applies machine learning technology to identify keys and tables, and then outputs structured data that includes the relationships within the original file. That way, you can extract information quickly, accurately, and tailored to your specific content, without heavy manual intervention or extensive data science expertise.

  • Form Recognizer is billed by pages analyzed. When a document is submitted for analysis all pages are analyzed unless a page range is specified with the "pages" parameter in the request.
  • Form Recognizer has a free tier (F0) that enables you to test all the Form Recognizer features.
  • Form Recognizer does not have a monthly/yearly subscription, but you can use the commitment-based pricing model for large workloads. See pricing details for additional details.
  • Training custom models is always free with Form Recognizer. You are only charged when a model is used to analyze a document.
  • While you cannot separate the bills for different models being used, metrics by model type are available in the Azure portal on the metrics tab.
  • Container pricing is the same as cloud service pricing.
