Business card reader

I am thinking of creating a PowerApp which actually scans a business card.

For this I have gone through with some ideas and trying to use Cortana "Computer Vision services" API to read text from Business card and store it to the database.

Is it possible, please do let me know.

Re: Business card reader

Hi,

 

I tried to add the "ComputerVisionAPI" over the button with the below formula:

 

ClearCollect(ImageCollect, ComputerVisionAPI.OCRText(MyCam.Photo),Table1.Content)

 

But getting below error:The keys are correct as the API is working in Console application.

{ "statusCode": 401, "message": "Access denied due to invalid subscription key. Make sure to provide a valid key for an active subscription." }

 

Please have a look to the formula and please let me know, why the error is coming.

 

Best Regards

Re: Business card reader

Hello,

 

The below error is coming because I am not using the right key for area or country.

While adding the Cortana computer vision API, Add both "Account Key" & "Site URL" where

 

"Account Key" : Your subscription key.

 

"Site URL" : The name of country area (For eg: West Europe)

Re: Business card reader

Did u get to any solution? I'm stuck right after the ocr text recognition. I don't really know how to manage the recognition of name, surname and job title. For email and number it was sort of easy using the flags + or @.
