    Are you trying to read just one character or all the text on the image?

    Hey,

    What you are trying to do is called Optical Character Recognition.

    I have never done this personally but there are a few Classes out there that can handle this.

    I suggest taking a look at these links. You will definitely find a solution here:


    Java OCR API library SDK component control

    Asprise OCR SDK library for Java enables you to equip your Java applications with optical character recognition (OCR) ability.

    Optical Character Recognition

    A library in Java that can recognise areas of an input image that are likely to contain text.

    GOCR

    GOCR is an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program. It converts scanned images of text back to text files



    I'm sure its quite complicated so good luck!
