Unable to get data from multiple pages in single pdf- Abbyy OCR

Hello all,

I am trying to scrape information from 4 page pdf document to txt file. I have decided to try Abbyy cloud OCR(Trial Version) with Uipath 2018.4. Every time I to run the bot, I see that only one page is getting scrapped though the Range is “All” which is the default. I also tried to change the range to “1-4” it still doesn’t work as expected. Can someone help me with this?

welcome to uipath community
but this would actually work on mentioning “All” in the range
did we try using normal READ PDF OCR activity
Cheers @Pkotla

Yes I did! It’s a pretty straight forward bot. Don’t know why it is acting so weird.

I could see a similar issue in the below post as well.

kindly try once with other ocr like google or microsoft and write that string output in a text file

Cheers @Pkotla

I tried using google and Microsoft OCR . The result doesn’t look similar to the Abbyy OCR.

Here are few of the observations I have noticed while working on google and Microsoft OCR

  • Both the OCRs couldn’t scrape all the pages.
  • Accuracy and Alignment of text was no where closer to the Abbyy.
  • It took much longer time than usual.
