Accessibility Insights, Winium, OCR

Could anybody please advise about the current status of Katalon regarding Windows desktop applications testing automation?

  • Is  “Accessibility Insights for Windows”  necessary to complement the recording feature of Katalon?
    
  • Is  Winium driver necessary for finding elements with XPath?
    
  • Does Katalon implement OCR?  Is Sikuli usable for that purpose?
    

Many thanks in advance for any comments.

@cristina.fierbintean,

  1. Is “Accessibility Insights for Windows” necessary to complement the recording feature of Katalon?
    You can only use built-in Katalon Recorder to recording actions. Accessibility Insights is an optional solution to capture elements.

  2. Is Winium driver necessary for finding elements with XPath?
    Katalon Studio’s Windows Desktop App testing uses WinAppDriver as the base driver, it’s not Winium. If you prefer Winium, you can refer to this sample: https://docs.katalon.com/katalon-studio/docs/katalon-with-winium-for-desktop-applications.html

  3. Does Katalon implement OCR? Is Sikuli usable for that purpose?
    Katalon Studio doesn’t support OCR for Windows Desktop App testing. If you interest with OCR, Sikuli is a suitable solution here.
