peninput recognizedtext works only in which platforms?

I get the error message below when I run an app using PenInput.recognizedText in a browser or in IOS.


Recognition is not supported on this platform


Please confirm the platform that this works.

Hi Raul,


I created a simple App which contained a Pen Input control and using Peninput.RecognizedText. When I ran this App on PowerApps Studio, it worked well. Then I ran the App on Web Browser and iOS, all were shown the message “Recognition is not supported on this platform”. Below is a screenshot of the message which was shown when I ran the App on Web Browser.

For this issue, I would suggest you to submit an idea at “PowerApps Ideas”. The link of “PowerApps Ideas” is:

I have been using Pen-Input for signature (acknowledgement) for an App for about 3 weeks and the speed gains faster and faster between the App and CDM, but these are running on Win 10 Studio and Android 5 & 6 (from USD 100 Phone to USD 700 phone and I don;t see any different in the speed of both cheap and expensive phone, from Asus, Sony and Nexus).


Just sharing in case those use Android and Win 10.


Hope it helps.
