JPEG is one of the most used graphic file formats in the world therefore it is also supported by a lot of graphic viewing and editing applications. This set contains applications that let you convert JPEG images to text files (by transforming the image files into document files or by extracting the text from the images and saving it to new, separate text files).
These programs can help you with what you're intending to do:
