Using pyTesseract to extract text from picture

 Here we got screenshots of text from web pages as seen below.

There is need to extract specific text from the images (in this case text that contain 'address' or 'location' strings), so we make use of PIL and pytesseract

import glob
import pytesseract
from PIL import Image
# Download tesseract.exe:
pytesseract.pytesseract.tesseract_cmd = r"C:\Program Files\Tesseract-OCR\tesseract.exe"

# Extract text from image...
images = glob.glob(fr'C:\Users\`HYJ7\Documents\Jupyter_Notebooks\Naveda Company Scrapping\imgs\*.png')

# Read image using PIL and extract text using pyTesseract
# Read img...
image =[67])
# Extrxct text...
extracted_text = pytesseract.image_to_string(image)
clean_txt = extracted_text.strip().split('\n')

for c in clean_txt:
    if any(substring in c for substring in ['Address', 'Location']):


That is it!
