One or 2 Android versions ago, my Samsung phones would return search results if the search term was in the picture but not, necessarily, in the file name, path or metadata of the picture.
 
For example, if I took a picture of the "Burger King" logo, I could search for "King" within the Gallery and the picture in question would come up. Or if I took a picture of my passport, I could search for "Address" and it would come up as well.
 
However, for a very long time now, OCR-based search has not been working.  Now, results seem to be restricted to if the search term is in the file path or metadata (such as the location.)
 
Is OCR-based search still working for anyone?  Or if anyone knows the solution to my problem, please do share!

How long have you had this problem?  I've had it since at least Android 13 (OneUI 5).

I have the same issue. Samsung is doing worse work day by day. Samsung has restricted also band locking. Samsung ui has not multi user feature. We should put pressure on Samsung to make all these features available.
