Set up and manage optical character recognition in Microsoft Syntex
The optical character recognition (OCR) service for Microsoft Syntex is set up in the Microsoft 365 admin center.
You must have Global admin or SharePoint admin permissions to be able to access the Microsoft 365 admin center and set up the OCR service in Syntex.
Set up optical character recognition
After an Azure subscription is linked to Microsoft Syntex, OCR will be automatically set up and enabled for all SharePoint sites for Syntex.
Set up data loss prevention policies using OCR
The compliance admin can specify which SharePoint sites to include for data loss prevention. If there are different sites specified for Syntex and data loss prevention, the maximum number of sites will be enabled for OCR. You won't be charged twice for processing.
