What is Text Recognition in Ikes?
Ikes PREMIUM has two text recognition features. One is the OCR function, which recognizes text contained in an image that is to be added or already added as an idea, and automatically input it into Caption. The other is the Scanner mode, which allows you to add recognized text directly into text section as an idea.
Ikes has text recognition capabilities using Apple's Vision Framework. In the latest iOS 15, the following languages are supported.
Set the primary language for text recognition
Whether you are using the OCR or the Scanner mode, you need to specify the target language for text recognition in order to get correct results.
You can change the primary language for OCR in the Setting tab.
How to use OCR
The OCR function can be used for images that have already been added in Ikes
When you add an image or when you open an idea with an image, there is the OCR button at the bottom right of the image area. When you click it, "Recognizing..." will be displayed in the caption area. When the text recognition is completed, the recognized text will be inserted into Caption automatically. If there is already text in Caption, the recognized text will be inserted at the end of it.
If no text is recognized, nothing will be inserted into Caption. If you do not get the expected results, try taking pictures in a brighter area, or make sure the language setting for recognition is correct.
