Recognizing text from labels on a cylindrical surface is not supported at present.

However, you could use a Label as an image (assuming it has a sufficient amount of details) and use the Cylinder Targets feature, as I said previusly.

Note that using 1000+ images is not compatible witht he current Cylinder Target feature; for such a case, technically you would need the support of Cylinder Targets in Cloud Database, similarly to what is currently available for Image targets:

You may want to post your request in our Forum Wish List so that we can take it into consideration for future versions of the SDK:

I have  to recognize more than 1000 images .Would it be feasible to recognize text from labels or to recognize label as an image.

Please give suggestion..

Just to add some extra tips:

if you have a specific Brand label with a given piece of text, you may want to handle the label just as an Image, and use the Cylinder Targets feature, by creating a Database with a cylinder target using your image.

If it's not a standard English word, you'll need to define it in a custom word list - https://developer.vuforia.com/resources/dev-guide/word-targets

But you'll also need to test to see whether you can detect the word on the curved surface you are using. Text recognition is designed for flat surfaces, and though some curvature can be tolerated there will be a limit to what can reliably be detected depending on the degree of curvature.

This depends on the specific scenario; do you need to be able to recognize any text (i.e. any generic english word), or just a few specific words (such as a specific brand label for instance)?
