    Hello @william treacy

    Thanks for using Microsoft Q&A platform. Yes, you are right - The Computer Vision legacy ocr API(V2.1) and RecognizeText operations are no longer supported and should not be used.

    OCR now means the OCR enginee - Microsoft's Read OCR engine is composed of multiple advanced machine-learning based models supporting global languages. This allows them to extract printed and handwritten text including mixed languages and writing styles. Read is available as cloud service and on-premises container for deployment flexibility. With the latest preview, it's also available as a synchronous API for single, non-document, image-only scenarios with performance enhancements that make it easier to implement OCR-assisted user experiences.

    The new API you can call it as OCR (Read) editions(V3.2), please check the document here for the quickstart - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/computer-vision/quickstarts-sdk/client-library?tabs=visual-studio&pivots=programming-language-csharp

    Please have a try and let me know if you have any question about it.

    Regards,
    Yutong
