That's the realm of Optical_character_recognition (OCR) and libraries such as Tesseract.

That may be difficult. J2ME is for smaller hardware platforms, and good-quality OCR really requires something more powerful to run on. Google does something of that nature, I think, where you can snap a picture of text and get it decoded, but they cheat. They upload the image to a server farm that OCRs and language-translates and then downloads the result. They don't run in within the device itself.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
