OCR Data Capture

Data Extraction using OCR techniques

Data can be embedded in a bitmap, for example, data are displayed on a Web page using a Flash applet. There is no other way to capture this kind of data except using OCR techniques.

In the following video, you will see how a WinTask script can be created using Recording mode and Capture OCR wizard to automate these steps:

  1. Load a web page, a page displaying share prices in a bitmap
  2. Call the Capture OCR wizard
  3. Select the data to be captured and OCRized
  4. Display the OCRized value

We will then review the script which has been automatically generated by Recording mode/Capture wizard and click Play for replaying the script just created and display the captured data.
