The UiPath Screen OCR now requires the API key authentication. To make it simple, the API key you need is the same one as for the Computer Vision and you can get it from this page:
For more information, please see our documentation here:
UiPath Screen OCR is our own in-house, machine-learning based OCR targeted for screens and digital text.
It can be used as an alternative to the other OCR engines, with any of the available Screen Scraping activities from the UI Automation or Computer Vision packages. And the final scope is to become the default Computer Vision text detection engine.
From our tests, Screen OCR performs much better on application screens & digital text than all leading OCR engines
Bold claim, right? We challenge you to prove us wrong! Do a quick test with an existing workflow (or build something new, either works) and drop our Screen OCR engine in, then compare the difference.
Please share your experiences below. We’re excited to see everyone put this to the test!
