Is there an OCR (optical character reader) for OS/2-eCS? It would be what is needed for what you want to do(?).

<a href="http://home.tiscalinet.de/fbakan/gocr-os2.htm">GOCR for OS/2</a>
I did a Google and found the above.
<a href="http://home.tiscalinet.de/fbakan/gocr/gocr0.38-os2.zip">GOCR 0.38 compiled with GCC 3.2.1</a>
<a href="http://home.tiscalinet.de/fbakan/gocr-os2-038.htm"> GOCR Home</a>

Here is one that is called <a href="http://www.fbakan.de/clara-os2.htm">CLARA</a> for OS/2-eCS. <a href="http://www.fbakan.de/clara/clara-20031214-os2.zip"> Clara OCR snapshot from 20031214 compiled for OS/2</a>

Here are the results of a <a href="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=optical+character+reader+os/2&btnG=Google+Search"> Google</a>
