Computer Vision API does not seem to work



I have added Computer Vision API to try and utilise the OCR feature. I want to be able to extract the text from a photo taken by the user at the time, but whenever I try to it does nothing. No error message, only loads for several minutes before the app stops responding to any input. 


I take a photo with the camera control, and then press a button with the following formula:



Is there any reason why this would not work?

I have managed to get it to work by sending it to a flow, which saves the photo to sharepoint and then sends the text via email but this is not fulfilling the function I want.
