Extracting text from image files

P: n/a
Can anyone point me towards information/.net components that can be used for text
extraction and pattern recognition? In particular, I am interested in working with a
screenshot and extracting text and identifying specific icons on the screenshot.

I believe that Leadtools has some nice libraries but they are expensive. I also don't
need all of the scanning/TWAIN support as my images will already be in raster format.

Any help/pointer would be great. I don't mind an excurion into writing it myself with GDI
if I can find good examples / source code.

Thanks!
