AS3 - Extract text from image

Is it possible to extract the text from an image like this?

(I'd like to display it in an textfield afterwards) Thanks. Uli


What you're looking for is Optical Character Recognition. Here is a similar question:

OCR Actionscript

Though sadly it has no clear-cut answer. There is no native class/framework for doing it in AS3, though I'm sure it's possible.

This is a task where you'd employ web service. I know Google Docs can OCR an image for you. ABBYY, whose FineReader is one of the best in the business, also provides an OCR web service. Google has open-sourced their OCR software. You can conceivable set it up on your own server.
