This does not apply to anyone NOT using next snapshots (NVDA menu/Help/About).
In short, this feature will allow NVDA to recognize screen text and present the result in a document window.

I use windows creator but I am so sorry to say that I don’t know anything about this feature you are mentioning,
Can you please explain to me what I should do in my case with OCR?
Thanks in advance
The following advisory from the add-ons community is for people using NVDA next snapshots on Windows 10:
Due to UWP OCR feature introduced in today’s next snapshot, please disable OCR add-on if you are on Windows 10 and using next snapshots. This is because NVDA+R is now a native NVDA command to recognize text on screen using a chosen OCR engine.
