  1. Japanese language support for the READ API

    The READ API does not support Japanese. The OCR API supports Japanese, but does not support PDF files. Japanese customers are in great demand for reading Japanese PDF files. Any ideas when Japanese will be fully supported as well?

  3. Hindi (Devanagri) Language Support

    This API has limited language support. Please do include more languages support as well. Or please share the idea of creating our own custom language train models and use them as our source language.

  5. Spanish and French language support

    Read API supports only English and Spanish is in Preview. Any ideas when Spanish will be fully supported and when some other languages like French or German will be supported as well?

  7. Include DBpedia id in Celebrity and Landmark Models

    To disambiguate similar names, include a DBpedia graph id in the response. This will help more with categorizing results and using the data in more meaningful ways.

  9. Add support to Berber languages

    The Berber language is a very old language.

    There are many benefits of supporting this languages.

    For example, there are a lot of very old books that one may want to digitize and index in order to allow millions of Berber-speakers to access to those resources online for example.

    There is a lot of effort to do that, but the first step is the have a tool that can perform Optical Character Recognition.

  10. Add Wolof Language support in OCR API

    I need your OCR API to support the Wolof language (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolof_language) which alphabet is pretty close to French except for a few characters. Thus, I think it should be easy to integrate it the OCR API

  12. Add the ability to get localized language support for image description with Vision API

    In order to allow a broader use of the service, it would be great to have the ability to specify the language in which we want to get the image description via Vision API.

    We are researching options to bring this capability to Computer Vision.

  13. OCR returns Chinese Traditional instead of Simplified

    I tested "Read text in images", or named OCR, and found this.
    I selected Chinese Simplified, but I got Chinese Traditional character.
    Please see the fourth char.
