TextCaptureX is a COM library that allows screen text extraction in Windows applications. It is accessible from any COM aware programming languages.
You can use it to extract text from any application that doesn't provide communication API's in order to feed another program. You can also use it to extract text from legacy systems, file directories, status bar messages, Windows error messages and more.
TextCaptureX is not OCR based so it's incredible fast. So it's convenient to embed it into dictionaries or translation tools. Imagine: your customer captures any text on screen, even when copy/paste is not available, with a hotkey and with a mouse click your dictionary pops up with the text already translated/explained.
