BUSINESS CARD SCANNER

Good morning. 

I'm implementing a business card scanner on powerApps and got stuck right after the text recognition right where i should be able to understand what each word belongs to (name, surnem etc). 

Till now it works well with number, address, website, email and sometimes company and name.

 

Does anyone have any idea?

Hi @yasminSarbaoui,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

How do you design the card scanner within your app? Using Barcode control?

Currently, Barcode control within PowerApps supports the following Barocde type:

Codabar
Code 128
Code 39
EAN
Interleaved 2 of 5
UPC

If you want your Barcode control to recognize Text Barcode value (e.g. "Kris Dai"), please consider take a try to set the BarcodeType property to following:

BarcodeType.Code128

If you could provide more details about your scenario, we would provide a proper workaround for you.

 

Best regards,

Kris

Hello @v-xida-msft ! Actually I'm not using any barcode (also for the barcor reader that I've implemented for another project I've preferred using another solution that was working well also for QRs). 

Btw what I'm doing is simply to take a picture, trigger a flow that converts the image format and calls the ocr, then from the text I get back, i can recognise what has a regular format like @ for emails or + for numbers etc..

 

Am I clear ?
