Took a screen shot of your image above.  Seemed to work for me.  You have to let the note "bake" for a bit on the server for the OCR of the image to be completed.  Hit sync a few times.  Took a few minutes for me.

Absolutely amazing. I copied from the video as a screenshot, send it from the camera roll of my iPad into EN, and it was OCRed within of 1 Minute after the new note was created:

Not all words were identified. We know that typical fill words like the, is, have etc. are not in search results. And the handwriting is a bit up and down, maybe there will be words that are not detected. But in general very good, and super fast !

As per the others, I used a screenshot of your note1810508671_ScreenShot2020-02-18at3_51_33PM.png.9383b0eca2621850e724153c7fd54737.png
Evernote processed it and generated a text file, listed below
It's hit and miss with handwriting depending on various factors,
for the best results use typing

Personally, if I create handwriting I prefer to do it in Goodnotes 5, have it OCRed by the Goodnotes engine and import it later as a pdf into EN.

When it comes with OCR, EN will not OCR it again. 

However, if it comes already handwritten I rely on the EN OCR as well. The OCR from pictures is amazing - it extracts the text from the sticker of a wine bottle even when it comes bottle-shaped bend and with 3D-perspective as a JPEG, taken under "romantic" light conditions.
