How to read an image with OCR

ocr
studio

#1

I want to read scanned image of ID card. Is there any way other than screen scraping. For pdf, we can implement this with ‘Read PDF with OCR’ activity. Is there any activity like this for Image reading?

Hi @ajith.jose

Maybe Get OCR Text(which is also generated automatically when doing screen scraping).

Or, if you like Read PDF with OCR activity better, you could Add Image to a Word document -> Export to PDF -> Read PDF with OCR.

Hi @ajith.jose,

There is no way as you read the PDF with “Read PDF with OCR” for reading image. You should use only scraping to extract the data from image.

Thanks,
