OCR is just pattern matching at the end of the day. You'll need to learn to parse graphics files and learn pattern matching basics. I'd concentrate on parsing one particular font for now, say pages from a book or such like.

Visual Basic is Microsoft’s event-driven programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) for its Component Object Model (COM) programming model. It is relatively easy to learn and use because of its graphical development features and BASIC heritage. It has been replaced with VB.NET, and is very similar to VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), the programming language for the Microsoft Office product line.
