Introduction to Screen OCR capabilities

The Screen OCR feature is a Pega Robot Studio capability that you can use to automate Windows applications when the standard Pega Robot Studio object-level injection and user interface automation interrogation methods are not possible.

Also known as screen scraping, the Screen OCR feature uses an image of the application to find the location of the controls that are used in the automation. The image is processed by ABBYY® Fine Reader, an OCR library included in Pega Robotic Automation. This library tells the system where keywords are located on the screen so you can use Pega Robot Studio methods to click, double-click, get, and set text relative to those key words.

For more information, see Creating automations using the Screen OCR feature.
