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

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

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.
