CV get text just doesn't find it, gives error Element not found


I am trying out the beta of computer vision, just finding a word which has been set up with an anchor. There are no errors in the workflow show, but running it gives
Runtime execution error
Source: CV Get Text - Area
Mesage: Element not found
Exception Type: UiPath.CV.ElementNotFoundException

What to do? It is quite clear text and nothing has moved.



Hope you placed CV Get Text activity inside the CV Screen Scope activity.

Pls post a screenshot of the app


@susen - Checking in, have you since resolved this issue? If not, are you able to provide a screenshot?


hi please check the scope and check the which ocr are using in scope.



I’m not quite sure what you mean by scope here - is it possible to get assistance?

I found that niehter the google nor microsoft OCR was very good compared to abbyy screen reader, which is not included, so one has to launch it separately; this cuased problems too.


All CV activities have to be placed inside a CV Screen Scope. If you double-click the image in the scope, you’ll see the full version of it, with all the detected elements highlighted. Pls post that.

Can anyone help us how to use computer vision activities in uipath with a workflow?
& what makes it different from normal click,type into,get text,find element activities?



@niteshbutola5, Please use the option select editor in the window where the data scrape is stored. Validate to see if the actual data is being captured. Add a few more attributes to see if that works

Try running in debug mode with Highlight option turned on. Does it correctly identify both anchor & target?
