How can I install addition OCR engine in Power Automate Desktop Extract text with OCR

Hi,

 

My OCR extract text from PDF is working normally on 2.13 but after update to 2.14 the build-in Tesseract engine in (OCR engine type) is not working anymore. Some expert total me can use the OCR engine variable to run, but I am new and no idea in how to add a new engine in OCR engine variable. Now there is no option available to choose at this moment.

 

Is there any expert can tell me how to install a OCR engine in power automate desktop and where should I find those engine to download. Since the origin pdf is an invoice receive require print out for user to sign and then scan back as a pdf image to store in server. Every day my colleague require to rename numerous pdf file to the image invoice number, therefore the OCR feature can help me to reduce the working amount.

 

I am pleased if any expert can teach me in how to install another OCR engine in Power Automate.

 

Thank you

Have you considered switching to a cloud flow and using AI Builder to extract the data from your pdf?
