QUESTION: Is there an applet (Win) or PS plug-in that OCR's to return JUST THE FONT(s) in a graphic or hi-lit section (read inside)? Thanks in advance!!

I realize that regular OCR's like Textbridge and OmniPage have
so-called "exact format" settings that are supposed to pick up the
font (or pick one from those installed to "match"), but I'm talking
about a quick applet that can be used when working with graphics to
determine the font face EVEN IF IT'S NOT ACTIVELY INSTALLED.
Preferably, such an app would give you the exact font and the font
"family" with a list of more common fonts that would be similar.
Also, preferably it would work as an applet that runs in the
background and can be used to OCR a highlighted section of a bitmap or
vector graphic from anywhere in Windows without opening the graphic in
the program itself. This applet need not even actually carry out the
full OCR function, just provide a font name/list.
Thank you for any info!!
Some good programmer could make a pretty penny on this idea!
Even if it exists in some form or fashion, it's certainly not popular
or readily available, and (as every graphic artist knows) it's a
time-consuming pain in the ass searching through thousands of fonts
trying to match one up. Hey, sell it to Adobe so we can all use it in
the next version, or make a plug-in! There are so few good TEXT
