PowerApps ComputerVision OCRText without Flow

I watched the following PowerApps ComputerVision OCRText  video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXSRKfYqYMM&t=844s

 

Has Microsoft resolved this so that the ComputerVision OCRText connector will work directly within PowerApps without having to use Flow as discussed in the video above ?

 

If so, can someone please describe the exact syntact to execute the OCRText Command on an image?

 

We would prefer to not use Flow, if possible.

Thank you.

Re: PowerApps ComputerVision OCRText without Flow

Thank you, Michael. Are you saying this works without Flow ?

That was our goal, to not have to use Flow with this product.
