    Can Silk do OCR like Winrunner ?

    A Winrunner Guru friend of mine was touting Winrunner's ability to read a bitmap from a portion of the screen, perform OCR, and return the appropriate text (Ascii).

    Of course, it sounds like a great QnD workaround when the tool just can't easily recognize a particular object.

    Does SilkTest have this feature (? if not, how come ?), and if not, has anyone successfully implemented it as a .dll call to some third party software ?


    Thanks,
    Joe V.

    AFAIK SilkTest does not offer OCR functionality like that in WR.

    (BTW, it's a great feature when your back is really to the wall and there are no other options available!)

    I do remember hearing of a third-party company offering an add-on dll to SilkTest some time back which performed this task - can't remember the name of the company, but a web search may locate it.

    There also seems to be a tool called Textract mentioned at http://www.qalinks.com/Tools/more2.html which may be able to offer some help.

    Hope this is of some use,

    'Automatrix'
