Pytesseract error while deployment

hello, I’m receiving this error while I’m trying to use py-tesseract:-

pytesseract.pytesseract.TesseractNotFoundError: C:\Program Files\Tesseract-OCR\tesseract.exe is not installed or it’s not in your PATH. See README file for more information.

any ideas?

GitHub repo:

IIRC using pytesseract requires the tesseract engine installed on your system. Follow this guide to set it up - Home · UB-Mannheim/tesseract Wiki · GitHub

Hi @Marwan_Ashraf, and welcome to our community! :raised_hands:

The installation instructions for pytesseract say that Google’s tesseract-ocr is a dependency.

It may be useful to get a full error log trace on your issue, but it’s likely you would need to install tesseract-ocr as an apt-get dependency (for Linux applications outside the Python environment).

Have a look a this step-by-step explanation by Snehan to deploy it on our Community Cloud service.

Let me know if questions.
