Apply OCR scan to stored pictures in order to index them and search for scanned documents easily.
Tried to implement this with PowerAutomate and "TesserAct OCR", but couldn't find this module as an "action" for my new flow.
This used to be available. It was incredibly handy. I do not understand why it vanished.
pls apply OCR on Onedrive
Interesting to see that Microsoft is not even giving any answer to this request. They are talking about supporting the customers on the digitization journey but hiding when it comes to provide meaningful benefits. No clue why, bottom line this is disappointing behavior for your customers.

Microsoft Lens for iOS has better scanning features, and it can scan from stored photos. OneDrive can not. The dream is to be able to:
→ scan (not necessarily scan direct from camera)
→ tone/contrast correct the background whiteness so we have a clean page but don't lose any data,
→ save to PDF on OneDrive,
→ OCR using OneDrive Cloud (it doesn't have be processed locally on my iDevice which might lack power/battery life
→ use iPad pro + Apple Pencil to mark up documents (like we used to be able to before the developers nerfed it!)
Come on Dev Team. MS OneDrive is pretty close to having a killer app here!
Why is this only available in OneDrive (personal) and not OneDrive for Business? There are so many scenarios where this funcationality would allow users to automate their business processes. I'm in the local government sector and would love to see this feature implemented.
