How do I control Live Text display?

Toggle the display of Live Text on or off per session, active document, or even by recognizer type.

About this task

You can control Live Text display using the Live Text preferences panel or the Tools action menu options.

  • Hover over an individual Live Text instance in the active document and select Live Text Preferences to open the Live Text preferences panel.
  • Toggle the display of Live Text using Tools menu options.
  • Turn off the display of all Live Text in the active document by hovering over a Live Text instance and toggling off the Recognize Live Text in this Document option.
  • Hover over a Live Text instance and disable Live Text display for that specific recognized Live Text type, such as address, using the Stop Recognizing > type option.
  • Enable or disable display of a specific recognized text type using the Recognizers tab in the Widget Management view or the Live Text preference panel.
  • Enable or disable display of the supplied, advanced recognizers using the Recognizer tab in the Widget Management view. That recognizer name for people, addresses, and organizations is Advanced Recognizer for the USA in the Recognizer tab view.
  • Administrators can enable or disable Live Text display using a Domino® policy or Eclipse™ preference. There is a similar policy and preference for enabling the display of the supplied, advanced recognizers.
  • Power® users can enable or disable the Recognize All Content option on their My Widgets options menu to control whether Live Text is visible or not based on whether the recognizers are part of an associated action.
Starting with Notes 9, you can also customize the 5-second delay that occurs before Live Text recognizes data when you open a document. To change the delay, add the following setting to the plugin_customization.ini file, located in [NotesHome]/framework/rcp:
  • com.ibm.notes.client.annotation/annotateDelay=[the desired delay (in milliseconds)]
For example:
  • com.ibm.notes.client.annotation/annotateDelay=3000 is a 3-second annotation delay
  • com.ibm.notes.client.annotation/annotateDelay=0 will not have any delay
