OCR fails when scraping empty text

when i scrape using tesseract engine and the value i get is null it fails.
why is this?

Hello @Rowley101!

You can use a Try/Catch activity to handle this error, it’s a normal behaviour of OCR activities.
If the Try/Catch block fails in Try activity, drop an Assign activity in the Catch block, assigning empty text to the variable generated by the OCR activity.
