is face/text recognition broke for anyone else?

iOS & iPadOS

In 13.6 is text/face recognition broke for anyone else? For example if I try to read text from a photo like on facebook if facebooks OCR doesn't pick it up it doesn't tell me the text even if I perform the single 3 or 4 single tap I can't remember wich one I just do it gesture. I've also noticed since ios 13.0 it will no longer tell me what kind of face someone is making in the photo rather they are smiling, frowning, etc.

I think it depends on the picture. Some things, it'll recognize, while others it won't. I've honestly kind of had mixed results with this feature. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Are you finding that it's never correctly recognizing?

I'm not on 13.6 yet, but it was screwy before the update.
If you turn Voice Over off and back on, it will sometimes start working again for a while.
