Photo input supports all translation directions available in the application, except translation directions where the source language is Kazakh or Chinese.
You can edit the incorrectly recognized word by pressing the area with a pencil in the minicard.
The reasons for that can be as follows:
1) Incorrectly set source language – you must reverse the translation direction.
2) Poor quality of the original photo – you must re-photograph the text. Provide good lighting for your paper text, hold your cell phone steadily and don’t move it until the photo is taken.
3) Incorrectly determined top and bottom portions of the text – make sure that in the viewing window the camera icon on the photo button is oriented horizontally.
