@Padmaja_Viriyala If you can share a sample image that will help here. Is the text inside the image any kind of captcha? or normal alphabet which can be readable by a bot?

Hi @Rahul_Unnikrishnan

It’s a Normal readable text. It’s an image with Name, email and Phone. I have 5 images with same format text at same position. I need to extract the name, email, phone and write to excel for all 5 images.

Hi @Padmaja_Viriyala ,

If the format is the same you can use Get OCR Text activity or Computer vision(preferable). Images are provided below.

  1. get all the files from the folder.
  2. use a for loop and open them one by one.
    3)Use Get OCT Text to get the fields and save to a variable.
