Text from Image Verification

You can verify specific text from an image in your application. Test Studio will read the full or part of the text from the image and allow you to verify the content. You can also extract this text and use it as a variable in other test steps in your test. This feature unlocks new possibilities to automate the images in your applications.

Best practices

There are few things that could ensure more stable and reliable test execution:

    Green Use Text from Image Verification when you need to verify the text in an exact and static image.

    Green Specify only the part of the image which has the text, because logos and other symbols might be misinterpreted as characters.

    Red Do not use Text from Image Verification to verify a dynamic slide show or GIFs.
