Hi,

I need a program that is able to "rip" the text of the specified image (like Babylon, but it should copy the whole text)

Thanks.

i950,

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is the means by which text can be recognized from an image. There are plenty of free trials; the only free software worth bothering with (that I am aware of) is Simple OCR (http://www.simpleocr.com/). For the paid versions, take a look at OmniPage (http://www.nuance.com/omnipage/) or ReadIris (http://www.irislink.com/) for starters.

Cheers,
LHerrou
