I'm working in an EMR application that does not allow for the highlighting of text. I"m needing to compare a row in a dataset with the row in the application, but without being able to highlight the application row, it doesn't seem feasible.

I thought about trying to grab the region of the application and convert the "image" to text.

Has anyone dealt with this sort of thing before?

Hi Samuel,

Yes, you can use can "Image: Capture Screen" action to take a screenshot of the screen and then use an "OCR: Get text" action to get the text from the image.
