I want to extract text from Images. For example if I give image as shown here : link text
Then what I expect in result is plain text : Congratulations to BMW for Winning World Car of the Year 2006 From the Winner of Six Consecutive Le Mans 24 Hour Races 2000-2006 and not the file containing text tags. Is it possible ?

Firstly thanks for the reply.
The application that we are building requires that we extract text from display advertisements.
We are currently evaluating vendors that can give us text from the image.We used ABBYY's APIs(namely processImage and getTaskStatus) for evaluation.The API dumps a .result file in response.What we want is plain text / json response.
Say , If I submit the image mentioned in the question what I expect in the response is a string : Congratulations to BMW for Winning World Car of the Year 2006 From the Winner of Six Consecutive Le Mans 24 Hour Races 2000-2006
We don't want to process .result file to get the actual text.
Is it possible?
We also want to try out ABBYY FineReader Engine 11 for Linux and have raised a request for the same.We are awaiting reply from ABBYY team on this.
Thanks and Regards, Preeta
To get plain text document please try to use processImage::exportFormat = txt after that you will get txt file as output.
Using ABBYY FineReader Engine 11 you could get plain text before exporting, for more information please see article in out Knowledge Base: http://knowledgebase.abbyy.com/article/1582.
