Reading data, in the form of text and numbers, in virtual desktop automation is enabled by text recognition, or OCR.
You will learn:
- How to search for text and numbers and read text and numbers from a screen
- How to use areas to optimize the performance of the OCR engine
- How to configure OCR settings
This tutorial covers how to work with text and numbers on the screen. It's known as OCR - or optical character recognition - but its also referred to as just text recognition.
LEAPWORK ships with a set of building blocks that covers text and numbers when automating virtual desktops.
The example above shows how to search for text and also read text from a given area in an application. We also show how we can use filters and formats to limit the results of reading and finding text, to specific parts of a larger text.
