reading from windows

Again, I'm really new to Python...

How do I read text from a given window?

Also, if what I want to read isn't actually text (really a picture of some sort in the form of a letter or number), how would I figure out what it is? (Would I have to somehow copy the image, then perform some algorithm to determine what the picture is of number/letter... how would I do that if I have to?)

Thanks so much in advance.
