Image recognition in iOS15

iOS and iPadOS

This is old, but just came across this:
"Exploring images with VoiceOver: Explore people, objects, text, and tables within images in more detail with VoiceOver. Navigate receipts and nutrition
label values intelligently in logical order."

Thoughts on this? If this is true, this could be huge. Often with OCR apps, I can get the text of things like receipts, but in an order that makes no sense, which makes it difficult to actually know what I am reading. Even large tables on a pc with Jaws are often read in a strange order that makes it hard to actually make sense of the information. (if anyone has already found tricks to get over this problem, let me know!) In the meantime, I am looking forward to this new feature and hoping it actually works. It sounds small, but it could personally make my life a lot easier.

I hope it'll work on older phones. Not sure this is one I'd want to miss, so if it doesn't, I'll seriously consider upgrading.

Nice but I hope they fixed any bugs with VO itself. I like nice features but I prefer the voices work well and no issues with it. For example screen recognition. Hope they fix it and others bugs. The new features will work with those phone who have the latest chips. 11 and 12 and up. Not sure about the XS.
