Manual Validation for Digitize Documents

The example below explains how to manually extract data from an image and present the output in a separate file. It presents activities such as Digitize Document or Present Validation Station. You can find these activities in the UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities package.

Note:

This workflow is using an older version of the UiPath.IntelligentOCR.Activities package.

This is how the automation process can be built:

  1. Open Studio and create a new Process named by default Main.

Note:

Make sure to add all the needed files (.json files and all the images) inside the project folder.

  1. Drag a Sequence container in the Workflow Designer and create the following variables:
Variable Name
Variable Type
Default Value

Text

String

-

DOM

UiPath.DocumentProcessing.Contracts.Dom.Document

-

Data

UiPath.DocumentProcessing.Contracts.Taxonomy.DocumentTaxonomy

-

DocumentTaxonomy

UiPath.DocumentProcessing.Contracts.Taxonomy.DocumentTaxonomy

-

TaxonomyJSON

String

-

HumanValidated

UiPath.DocumentProcessing.Contracts.Results.ExtractionResult

-

  1. Drag a Read Text File activity inside the sequence.
    • In the Properties panel, add the name of the file, in this case "taxonomy.json", in the FileName field.
    • Add the variable TaxonomyJSON in the Content field.
  2. Add an Assign activity below the Read Text File activity.
    • Add the variable Data in the To field and the expression DocumentTaxonomy.Deserialize(TaxonomyJSON) in the Value field. This activity builds the taxonomy for extraction.
  3. Drag a Digitize Document activity below the Assign activity.
    • In the Properties panel, add the value 1 in the DegreeOfParallelism field.
    • Add the expression "Input\Invoice01.tif" in the DocumentPath field.
    • Add the variable DOM in the DocumentObjectModel field.
    • Add the variable Text in the DocumentText field.
  4. Drop a Google OCR engine inside the Digitize Document activity.
    • In the Properties panel, add the variable Image in the Image field.
    • Select the check box for the ExtractWords option. This option extracts the on-screen position of all detected words.
    • Add the expression "eng" in the Language field.
    • Select the option Legacy from the Profile drop-down list.
    • Add the value 2 in the Scale field.
  5. Place a Present Validation Station activity below the Digitize Document activity.
    • In the Properties panel, add the variable DOM in the DocumentObjectModel field.
    • Add the expression "Input\Invoice01.tif" in the DocumentPath field.
    • Add the variable Text in the DocumentText field.
    • Add the variable Data in the Taxonomy field.
    • Add the variable HumanValidated in the ValidatedExtractionResults field.
  6. Drag a For Each activity under the Present Validation Station activity.
    • In the Properties panel, select the option UiPath.DocumentProcessing.Contracts.Results.ResultsDataPoint from the TypeArgument drop-down list.
    • Add the expression HumanValidated.ResultsDocument.Fields in the Values field.
  7. Drag a Log Message activity inside the Body of the For Each activity.
    • Select the option Info from the Level drop-down list.
    • Add the expression item.FieldName in the Message field.
  8. Drag a Log Message activity below the first Log Message activity.
    • Select the option Info from the Level drop-down list.
    • Add the expression item.Values(0).Value.ToString in the Message field.
  9. Drag a Write Line activity under the Log Message activities.
    • Add the value "" in the Text field.
  10. Run the process. The robot uses the IntelligentOCR activities to manually process the data and to present the results.
