Sikuli does not seem to know the difference between the image of an 'e' and an 'o'.

Asked by Benjamin on 2010-02-03


I am trying to enter a line of text via clicks on an onscreen keyboard, into the text box of said keyboard, that contains an 'e'. Sikuli clicks on the 'o' key instead. We are looking at using this to test a cutting edge application. We have our own image compare algorithms that we can tune to handle this kind of a comparison properly. So I have three questions:

1. Does Sikuli have a tunable mechanism to eliminate such false positives?
2. Does Sikuli give access to it's image region comparison algorithm's for the verification part of the testing procedure?

Thanks kind folks!

Click on the image in the code, and you can fine tune it... the top bar indicates how similar to the sample it has to be to be what it is looking for so you can make it very vague or super specific

Thanks LP81 the refinement of the tuning parameter solved the problem. I had to take it to .97.
