Office OCR

My OCR can’t work properly. Do anyone have any experience in this area? Please help me
It always shows "OCR method failed to scrape this Region“

Hi @15143018065,

Try Microsoft OCR.


What engine did you use?
Do you have a sample workflow?

I get the same error, regardless of OCR method (Google or Microsoft), regardless of region, I’ve tried all the tricks such as turning off anti aliasing, font smoothing and the works. Fundamentally somethings are not working, what could it be?

UiPath version 2018.1.4, here is a sample process scraping the text “Hello world” from Notepad, “failing to scrape this region”.

I tried to your workflow, but it did not work at first because of the Find Image activity.
Since I use a different font for my Notepad, I just selected the image to be found, and it worked fine.
Another approach is to delete the Find Image activity, since it doesn’t seem to be necessary in this case.

Please take a look at this sample: ScrapeFromNotepad.xaml (6.6 KB)
