Hi All,

I have a image file with some text in it. I need to read the text from that image file. Could anyone suggest some way or module to achieve this?

Thanks

      Thanks for pointing out to a particular module. But i am not able to install this module both via cpan and nmake. Is there any special means to install it?

        Maybe the README file has some hints for you?

        Image::OCR::Tesseract
        =====================

        You will need tesseract and ImageMagick installed on your system.
        This package runs on Unix/Linux type OS.

        The Makefile.PL will check that you have tesseract installed.

        SEE ALSO

        INSTALL.tesseract
        INSTALL.imagemagick
        INSTALL

    If your text is not in the displayed image, but embedded in the file, OCR will not help you. In this case look at Image::ExifTool.
