The recording functionality reduces procedural content development time and cost by automatically capturing each screen, step, field entry, and button in the target application. As you record, the application watches your actions in the application, captures each step in the task, and converts the result to professionally formatted documents and simulations. You simply start the recorder, perform the actions that you would like to document, turn the recorder off, and then make edits to the resulting content.
For detailed information on enterprise applications supported by the recorder, refer to the Technical Specifications.
In addition, control recognition recording is available for non-accessible applications. Control recognition recording uses image processing to capture screens and entered information. For more information, refer to Specifying Recorder Tuning Options.
