Text field recognition right after dashed lines

I am having trouble getting text fields displayed right after dashed lines to be correctly recognized. For example, on the attached image, the text inside the red rectangle cannot be recognized: alt text

The text reads: "1 218 GASOLINA COMUM - Bico 16 47,285L x2,599 F1 122,84G"

Is there any way to improve this text field detection?

I tried textType=typewriter param. but that didn't change anything.

Thanks,

Ricardo.

    I am sorry, whenever I use the upload button, after selecting the file to upload, I get the following error message:

    Blockquote sorry, file uploading requires karma >60

    Trying again with markdown...

    alt text

    You could use some third-party image hosting or just write an email to the service support address which you will find on the right of your service dashboard when you log in to http://cloud.ocrsdk.com and attach the file.

    At this moment this is just beyond our OCR engine capabilities - it doesn't expect dashes to be so close to the letters and so completely fails to recognize the text on that line. We'll file an improvement request for this scenario.
