Besides its comprehensive automation capabilities for web, desktop, and SAP, the LEAPWORK Automation Platform also comes with an entire set of automation blocks for all actions related to image and text recognition. These include finding, selecting, and getting text and image elements as well as controlling any mouse and keyboard action.
Applications that only render finished pixels on a screen cannot be automated with regular automation approaches. This is true for virtual desktops and Citrix applications, but also graphics applications, games (both 2D and 3D), and Java applets, to name a few. The automation blocks for image and text recognition are designed to handle this specific challenge.
The capabilities of the LEAPWORK Automation Platform can be used in combination as needed. For example, a workflow that involves both an off-the-shelf desktop application and a custom-built visual component can be automated by combining Desktop UI building blocks with Image Recognition blocks.
