Configuring ABBYY for Automation Anywhere

Automation Anywhere supports a specific configuration of the ABBYY OCR engine to capture images.

Note: If you are using the Enterprise Client Version 11.3.2, the FineReader 12 is installed by default in the Enterprise Client Version 11.3.2 and does not require separate installation.
Do the following steps to configure ABBYY for Automation Anywhere:

Procedure

  1. Install ABBYY FineReader engine 11 on the machine.
  2. Use your license key to activate ABBYY through the ABBYY License Manager.
  3. Modify the app.config file available at the C:\Program Files (x86)\Automation Anywhere\Enterprise\Client\plugins\commands\ocr\ABBYY.
    1. Specify your ABBYY license key in the following tag:
      add key="LicenseKey" value="YOUR ABBYY LICENSE KEY"/
    2. Specify the location where you installed ABBYY FineReader in the following tag:
      add key ="EnginePath" value="LOCATION WHERE FINEREADER IS INSTALLED"/
    3. Specify the location of the ABBYY parameters file in the following tag:
      add key ="ProfilePath" value="LOCATION OF THE ABBYY_Parameters.ini FILE"/
    4. Specify the following parameter if you want to use ABBY version 11 with Enterprise Client Version 11.3.2:
      add key ="FREVersion11" value="true"
Version 11.3.2If you are using FineReader 12:
  • Specify the location of the ABBYY parameters file in the following tag:

    add key ="ProfilePath" value="LOCATION OF THE ABBYY_Parameters.ini FILE"/

  • Ensure that you have the Modify and Write permissions for the C:\Program Files (x86)\Automation Anywhere\Enterprise\Client\plugins\commands\ocr\ABBYY folder.
The ABBYY OCR engine uses a set of predefined parameters with their corresponding default values. To optimize the value of the extracted text, change the values of these parameters available in the ABBYY_Parameters.ini file. You can uncomment the available parameters in the file or add new parameters and their values that are supported by ABBYY. Any changes you make in this file are reflected in all the instances where OCR is used in Automation Anywhere.
