Then optical character recognition (OCR) is the the way to go. OCR software can process scanned documents and images and recognize letters and numbers. So if you have a scanned copy of an old magazine or journal you can use OCR software to pull out the text.
www.free-ocr.com is a reasonably useful website that does this for free.
While there are some restrictions in terms of formats and number of conversions, Free-ocr.com is good enough to get basic jobs done.
See the video for an intro and a quick live demo.
