Request: Apple OCR Support

Hi, is there a possibility to use the OCR from the photos app/ spotlight of iOS 15 in panels? Would be handy to be able to define text on screen or search etc

Thanks for the feedback @Ajay.

As far as I know, Live Text from iOS 15 is not open for developers. It’s just a feature in Apple apps.

Live Text works in Photos, Screenshot, Quick Look, and Safari and in live previews with Camera.

But it seems to come now with iOS16, really excited what you guys can say about a possible implementation of it in the near future. You can’t imagine how often I already tried to mark a text to translate and remembering that it worked only in Apple own applications yet (Safari, Preview, Mail, etc.). But the new LiveText-API sounds promising.

We are super excited about this too.

The new iOS 16 API looks promising. We’ll give it a try soon :wink:
