Methods

analyze_image

This operation extracts a rich set of visual features based on the image content. Two input methods are supported -- (1) Uploading an image or (2) specifying an image URL. Within your request, there is an optional parameter to allow you to choose which features to return. By default, image categories are returned in the response. A successful response will be returned in JSON. If the request failed, the response will contain an error code and a message to help understand what went wrong.

analyze_image_by_domain

This operation recognizes content within an image by applying a domain-specific model. The list of domain-specific models that are supported by the Computer Vision API can be retrieved using the /models GET request. Currently, the API provides following domain-specific models: celebrities, landmarks. Two input methods are supported -- (1) Uploading an image or (2) specifying an image URL. A successful response will be returned in JSON. If the request failed, the response will contain an error code and a message to help understand what went wrong.

describe_image

This operation generates a description of an image in human readable language with complete sentences. The description is based on a collection of content tags, which are also returned by the operation. More than one description can be generated for each image. Descriptions are ordered by their confidence score. Descriptions may include results from celebrity and landmark domain models, if applicable. Two input methods are supported -- (1) Uploading an image or (2) specifying an image URL. A successful response will be returned in JSON. If the request failed, the response will contain an error code and a message to help understand what went wrong.

read_in_stream

Use this interface to get the result of a Read operation, employing the state-of-the-art Optical Character Recognition (OCR) algorithms optimized for text-heavy documents. When you use the Read interface, the response contains a field called 'Operation-Location'. The 'Operation-Location' field contains the URL that you must use for your 'GetReadResult' operation to access OCR results.​.

read_in_stream(image, language='en', custom_headers=None, raw=False, callback=None, **operation_config)

Parameters

image
<xref:Generator>
Required

An image stream.

language
str or OcrDetectionLanguage
default value: en

The BCP-47 language code of the text in the document. Currently, only English ('en'), Dutch (‘nl’), French (‘fr’), German (‘de’), Italian (‘it’), Portuguese (‘pt), and Spanish ('es') are supported. Read supports auto language identification and multi-language documents, so only provide a language code if you would like to force the documented to be processed as that specific language. Possible values include: 'en', 'es', 'fr', 'de', 'it', 'nl', 'pt'

custom_headers
dict
default value: None

headers that will be added to the request

raw
bool
default value: False

returns the direct response alongside the deserialized response

callback
<xref:Callable>[<xref:Bytes>, <xref:response=None>]
default value: None

When specified, will be called with each chunk of data that is streamed. The callback should take two arguments, the bytes of the current chunk of data and the response object. If the data is uploading, response will be None.

operation_config
Required

Operation configuration overrides.

Returns

None or ClientRawResponse if raw=true

Return type

None,

Exceptions

recognize_printed_text

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) detects text in an image and extracts the recognized characters into a machine-usable character stream. Upon success, the OCR results will be returned. Upon failure, the error code together with an error message will be returned. The error code can be one of InvalidImageUrl, InvalidImageFormat, InvalidImageSize, NotSupportedImage, NotSupportedLanguage, or InternalServerError.

recognize_printed_text(url, detect_orientation=True, language='unk', custom_headers=None, raw=False, **operation_config)

Parameters

detect_orientation
bool
Required

Whether detect the text orientation in the image. With detectOrientation=true the OCR service tries to detect the image orientation and correct it before further processing (e.g. if it's upside-down).

url
str
default value: True

Publicly reachable URL of an image.

language
str or OcrLanguages
default value: unk

The BCP-47 language code of the text to be detected in the image. The default value is 'unk'. Possible values include: 'unk', 'zh-Hans', 'zh-Hant', 'cs', 'da', 'nl', 'en', 'fi', 'fr', 'de', 'el', 'hu', 'it', 'ja', 'ko', 'nb', 'pl', 'pt', 'ru', 'es', 'sv', 'tr', 'ar', 'ro', 'sr-Cyrl', 'sr-Latn', 'sk'

custom_headers
dict
default value: None

headers that will be added to the request

raw
bool
default value: False

returns the direct response alongside the deserialized response

operation_config
Required

Operation configuration overrides.

Returns

OcrResult or ClientRawResponse if raw=true

Return type

Exceptions

tag_image

This operation generates a list of words, or tags, that are relevant to the content of the supplied image. The Computer Vision API can return tags based on objects, living beings, scenery or actions found in images. Unlike categories, tags are not organized according to a hierarchical classification system, but correspond to image content. Tags may contain hints to avoid ambiguity or provide context, for example the tag "ascomycete" may be accompanied by the hint "fungus". Two input methods are supported -- (1) Uploading an image or (2) specifying an image URL. A successful response will be returned in JSON. If the request failed, the response will contain an error code and a message to help understand what went wrong.

tag_image(url, language='en', custom_headers=None, raw=False, **operation_config)

Parameters

url
str
Required

Publicly reachable URL of an image.
