Arabic OCR - now right to left :-)

Arabic OCR - now right to left :-)

Our latest Online OCR and OCR API update fixes the “left to right bug” with Arabic OCR that many users reported. Now the API returns the text in the correct order (right to left), and the online OCR forms display the arabic text right-aligned.

Thank you for your patience while we worked on this issue.

PRO OCR API: As always, the free OCR API gets the update first. We know that our PRO API customers value stability and reliability above new features, so the PRO OCR API will get this update a few weeks later, once we are 100% sure everything runs rock-stable. Of course, if you have a PRO API key, you can also connect to the free API endpoint at and start using the new features right away.
