Convert photo to text

Hi I want to know if I can take a picture with my app, then convert numbers from the picture to text as text input.  I read there are some possible ocr connectors for powerapps.  I am developing a mileage log app that takes start and end mileage of the trip.  I want to take a picture with the phone from the app, then it automatically converts it to text as input.  Any help to get me started, I'd appreciate it.  Thanks.

Re: Convert photo to text



check AI Builder which is now GA


or you can use Azure Cognitive Services

Call Flow and then call azure apis to fetch the information

Re: Convert photo to text

Thanks I will check it out.  Can I use flow from powerapps without needing Azure?
