Hi, Trying to do chinese text recognition on: http://images.apple.com/cn/mac/home/images/feature_ilife_iwork_title_2x.png, the return text file comes blank. I am using the php code sample at github: https://github.com/abbyysdk/ocrsdk.com/tree/master/PHP and using for the request url:

$url = 'http://cloud.ocrsdk.com/processImage?language=chinesePRC&profile=fieldLevelRecognition&exportFormat=txt';

Works fine on images with English and French but not for Chinese. Thanks.

The text is not recognized because it is in the alpha channel, which is automatically discarded by the service. It will be fixed in the future.

The workaround is to convert the image to any format without transparency.
