Use photos taken to recognize text

Hi all,

I am not able to use images taken with a camera using .photo to assign in text recognition. I can only use text recognition by uploading an image from local device.
In the documentation says "This component takes a photo or loads an image from the local device"
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/ai-builder/prebuilt-text-recognizer-component-in-powerapps

Isn't that still possible? And if so, how can I use it?

Re: Use photos taken to recognize text

Hi @Danilo-ES-BR ,

Do you want to set the DefaultImage property of the TextRecognizer control to the Camera1.Photo formula?

 

If you want to set the DefaultImage property of the TextRecognizer control to the Camera1.Photo formula, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

Currently, within PowerApps app, the TextRecognizer control only support uploading image via clicking "+ New Image" button within the TextRecognizer control (choose/upload image manually).

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Re: Use photos taken to recognize text

I found that when entering the application via smartphone, access a camera. So this feature is only limited to the web version.
