    I have a few pictures on my hard drive in jpeg and png form that have both images and text. I was wondering if there was software available that could extract just the text to copy and paste into MS Word or text edit.

    Not easily: the text is not stored as text: it's just pixels. If the text is on a plain background OCR software might be able to recognise it.
