Using the OCR Tuner

The optical character recognition (OCR) search engine in Eggplant Functional contains many tunable parameters that can help you improve your OCR searches. Spend time understanding the OCR properties so that you can make appropriate adjustments and achieve better search results in your test environment.

The OCR Tuner lets you adjust these OCR properties while viewing the results in the Capture Area and Text Read area in the UI to improve your OCR searches. After you make adjustments to these OCR properties, you can save them as a template style and use this and other template styles as explained in Text Preferences.

New feature: The OCR Tuner is available in Eggplant Functional 17.2 and later.

You can adjust your OCR properties from several UI locations:

Viewer Window

To open the OCR Tuner from the Viewer Window, open the OCR Tuner from a drop-down arrow located in the upper-right of the Capture Area.

Use the following steps as a guideline when using the OCR Tuner:

  1. Use the Capture Area as explained in the Capture Area topic.
  2. As you make changes in the Capture Area, view the text that OCR is reading in the Text Read area of the UI and search for the text being read in the top of the OCR Tuner.
  3. Make changes to the properties in the OCR Settings area of the UI that might improve your OCR search.
  4. Click Apply to commit any changes, then view the result in the Text Read area of the UI to see the improvement.

Click Copy to save the settings into the clipboard area for later use. Also, if you think you might reuse these settings in other searches, enter a style name next to the Save Style button, then click Save Style.

OCR Update Panel

The OCR Update Panel lets you adjust the OCR properties discussed earlier to improve your OCR searches. For detailed information about this approach, see the Tuner Tab.

Text Preference

The Text Preferences UI area lets you adjust the OCR properties discussed earlier to improve your OCR searches. For detailed information about this approach, see Text Preferences.
