These images have text in them and I can't find a tool that does this easily, preferably without any installations.

If you don't want to install anything, you might want to ask this at SU's sister site for web apps. – Pops Feb 17 '11 at 21:31

I don't think such a beast exists; you need something like a languge program that types what you speak; or a scanner program that will scan a dog and enter it into your fav text editor with the same format; something that can translate "read" all the images and convert it to text format. If you don't have very many you can do some manual conversions; or even cut copy paste ect. but some how I don't think this is what you are looking for, sounds like you have lots to do! – Iceking007 Feb 17 '11 at 23:07
    
Could you perhaps provide a screenshot of what kind of documents you want to convert? – Ivo Flipse Feb 18 '11 at 7:50

You could use a web based OCR (Optical Character Recognition) service like FreeOCR.
