Assuming black text on white paper in grayscale image:
I = I < 50;

Well Sean gave you more information than you gave him. About the only thing I'd add is to use imclose() and bwareaopen() to get rid of the images. Then go here for further advice:
http://iris.usc.edu/Vision-Notes/bibliography/contentschar.html#OCR,%20Document%20Analysis%20and%20Character%20Recognition%20Systems
because we can't build a turnkey system for you, and you're not providing enough information for us to do anything with anyway.
