How the flash light works

If you are not getting proper results, it might be too dark in your surroundings. You can now switch on the flash light by tapping the “Toggle Torch” button when Text Detective is scanning. The “Toggle Torch button is located right below the “Cancel” button in the top left corner of the screen. Note: the flashlight resets to “off” as soon as text is found. Enabled the flash at the beginning of each scan!

You’ll now be able to delete the history of your scans all at once. Here are the steps:

  • Go to the History tab
  • Tap the “Clear” button in the top left corner of the screen (in VoiceOver it is the first button after activating the History tab
  • Alert window will pop up. Confirm delete by tapping “Erase All” or “Cancel” to abort

Note: once you select “Erase All” the results history cannot be restored!
