How can I use Read PDF with OCR activity?

Hello! I need help with this activity. I drop this activity to read an image at a pdf, but it doesn’t work.

I put the pdf’s path and the range : “6”. The problem appears when the Abby OCR activity is executed.


Could you please try to use screen scraping function to specify range that you want to get value, select Scraping Method: OCR and select some OCR Engine first.

*Don’t worry, You can change OCR Engine later.
*Please confirm your PC has Abbyy programs.(ABBYY FineReader Engine SDK is required.)

@Natapong Do we need license to use the abbyy finereader sdk ? If no, from where can we download the sdk? If yes, then what alternative do we have ?

Thanks in Advance

Hi @mayank.te

Abbyy license is required, you can use other OCR Engine

Free OCR Engine
->Microsoft OCR
->Tesseract OCR
->OmniPage OCR


I hope this information will be useful for you :blush:
