Apple introduced iOS 15, and there were relatively few useful new features. As for me, the most interesting ones can be counted on the fingers of one hand, and one of them is Live Text. This option, in my opinion, is the most useful of all the ones presented – it recognizes text at the system level in the camera, in photos in the gallery, and even on images on the Internet, allowing you to select it and interact with it (copy, perform instant word search, call in case of allocation of a phone number, etc.). Unfortunately, the innovation is not able to recognize the Russian language, but there is still hope.
At the moment, Live Text only recognizes English, Chinese, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. The good news is that Apple seems to be interested in the Russian language. Last year, the company announced a proprietary translator (and built it into Safari), and it has Russian – you can translate both from it and into it. Therefore, it remains to be hoped that Live Text will receive the support of the great and mighty in the future.
Be that as it may, at the moment, “Live Text” is useful in Russia and the CIS countries only in sporadic cases, like those when the user wants to translate a foreign inscription or text on the screenshot.
