How to scrape Images & extract emails from them

Post by cpahunter » Mon Mar 12, 2012 1:40 pm

Hello,
I understand that HS can scrape images (though I haven't tried it yet).
How can I get emails which are displayed as an image?
Here is an example of what I mean:

Is there any way to get the email from the scraped images directly with HS?
Or do you have any experience / ideas how to resolve this, for instance together with an OCR?
Thanks for helping!

Hi,

Helium Scraper doesn't natively support OCR, but it could be integrated with an online service. If you happen to know about any good one, please do let us know. As long as they have an HTTP API, it can be integrated.
