Camera (Scan and Extract Text) Issue...

So when I go to take a picture of anything with text... it gives me the option to SCAN but I have never seen the option to Extract Text? Anyone happen to know if this is supposed to be a basic camera function or is the camera using another app to this part and if so... what app? I do have some thing disabled so maybe that's the problem.

You will need a 3rd party app to do OCR.

I think Google just released one (stack) that might help.

Still looking for someone who knows about this. No disrespect to the 2 who have posted but I don't believe they're familiar with the S21 and or just guessing. This is apparently something my phone should be able to do without downloading any kind of 3rd party app.

The Scan document has been around for a while and it does not do OCR. It simply crops the picture to focus on the document. https://android.gadgethacks.com/how-to/your-galaxy-has-hidden-document-scanner-built-heres-works-021...
