Optical Character Recognition supporting in Openspan
Can any one please let me know how the Openspan / Pega Robotics Automation supports the OCR(Optical Character Recognition). If so please provide me any help documents for the OCR or any links is helpful to me and how this OCR should be implemented in Automations.

Pega Robotics does not currently support OCR directly as of this date. You may add OCR capability by adding a .NET component you create to your solution. This can be done by wrapping a commercially available OCR component.
OCR capability is in the product road map, however. I can not comment at this time on a timeframe.
Pega Robotics supports the inclusion of .Net components - there is no direct integration with the tools you mentioned however. You can wrap those tools in C# to allow them to work in Pega Robotics. A component must inherit from System.ComponentModel.Component, must have a constructor that has no outside dependencies and must have public non-static methods.
To use any c# methods in OpenSpan then we need to warp them as suggested by you. But, when I use .net framework libraries using toolbox item window, we are able to add the components to toolbox which are static. For ex: System.Environment.UserName (mscorlib). Is OpenSpan inheriting the 'Component' class? In this case, how the static methods are getting added to toolbox? Can you please explain the difference for above cases.
I have done extracting text from image by using one note library. Its pretty forward method. All you need to have Microsoft.office.interop.onenote 15.0 library. Use it in a script write c# code to extract.
Static methods require no class instantiation to use, which is why they can be directly added to the Toolbox. Anything else on the Toolbox is a component (which is what you would wrap your class(es) in to be able to use them inside of Pega Robotics).
