Solution :

I faced the same problem in the past.

I hope you have properly installed it and have also done 

pip install pytesseract.

If everything is correctly done then you should see that the path C:\Program Files (x86)\Tesseract-OCR where tesseract.exe is available.

Adding Path variable did not helped me So I added new variable with name tesseract in environment variables with a value of C:\Program Files (x86)\Tesseract-OCR\tesseract.exe.

Now typing tesseract in the command line should work by giving your usage informations. Now you can use pytesseract as such  

Note : Please restart your python kernel before running this.

import pytesseract
from PIL import Image

text = pytesseract.image_to_string(value, config='')    
print("text present in images:",text)
