OCR Issues

I've been playing around with some sample OCR javascript code that I discovered on the Smartbear website. the following function is supposed to find some specific text on the current screen (passed in as the OCRText variable). if the intPixelValue is a positive number it will click below the textblock. if negative it will click above it. if the inputText variable is not "" then it will key in the value into a textblock.
