Anyone else have the “Detect text from picture” in Mastodon get stuck at “Preparing OCR…” Thought I’d give it a try today for the first time and can’t get past this.

@aral strange, I opened an issue github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/ about this but it was supposed to be fixed.

Can you check your console to see if you get any errors related to 'eng.traineddata.gz'

@aral OK, I am getting it too. Even on Mastodon.social, I will update the issue.

To be frank, it's never worked, for as long as I've been here, and across three instances.
