How to set language as a parameter of OCR to text in flow?

Hi

I would like to use OCR to Text with Japanese language. However, I cannot find how to specify the language as an input parameter.

 

When I tried OCR to Text without target language (because there is no field for language in "Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to Text (Preview)" conponent in Flow), the result was unk as language and no text was detected.

 

When I used Computer Vision API directly, the target language could be specified, and Japanese characters could be detected successfully.

Hi @Kozo ,

As you can see from the pic of the action, there is no more options for you to set the language as an input parameter.

So I am afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Thanks Zhongys for the reply.

I hope the language parameter will be added in the future.

Hey @Kozo 

Sorry for the belated reply... only just picked up this one.

The Encodian 'OCR a PDF Document' does allow you specify the OCR language... to the get the image text you could setup a flow such as:

And simply change the language property on the 'OCR a PDF Document' action:
