Today, we have rolled-out an emergency update of this plugin due to Google’s API instability to retrieve the image data.

Please update the plugin to the latest version, to prevent production issues in your application.

Hey @redvivi - does this plugin have the functionality to scan the mobile camera preview (so that the user doesn’t need to take a photo and can just position the text in the camera viewport) and detect text?
Our app users will need to scan the numbers in a barcode to remove the need to capture the numbers manually. Is this possible with this plugin?

Hi @paterson.damian !

Thanks for your message and your interest in our plugin!

Unfortunately, this plugin is specialized at detecting a text in an image.

What you are referring to is to implement a barcode reader using Google Vision.
This is definitely possible and require a custom plugin development that we would be happy to carry out.
Should this be an option, please reach us via direct message.

Hey bubblers!

Please be advised that this plugin has been updated with language hints, allowing you to tune the engine towards a specific language.
