Thank you for the reply. I've found only plenty of non-free libraries. I've tried a few of them, but nothing works, because what I'm trying to do is 'mission impossible'. You can see the sample image. Do you have any suggestions?

Suggestions for what? You showed us a picture of a game screen... or a sporting event screen... I can't tell which.

Are we just supposed to guess at what you're trying to do?

I have a hard time believing none of those libraries work. They can't all be broken.

Do you mean they don't work for your needs, right out of the box with no other programming on your part? That I would expect. You probably do need to do additionally programming to capture screen grabs, feed them to the library and so on. But without an actual description of your goal and the problems I'm not sure what you're asking of the volunteers here.

They are not broken, but maybe they don't work for this kind of picture. They only works when i want to export text from image with white background and black letters.

Yes, I don't wont programming anything (if it is not necessary), I want to put the picture, and pull out the text.

I want to export text from this sample image. This is my first touch with this kind of technology i don't know how it works, but i can see it works for 'blank text' image. So, the main goal is, how to export text from this sample image. If anyone have experience with something like this, and know how to do this please give me a tip.
