@bertieb On any given site, in the top right corner should be the Stack Exchange logo, which lists all of the sites in the network. Perusing that, I came across Signal Processing. Each site has a help page linking to questions that are on topic, and another off topic. The DSP site's help seems to be good for this. I'd like to note that I'm not a member there, so I don't know for sure how they will react.
I am confident they'll help you directly or point you in the right direction.
That said, here is my vaguely informed opinion. Depending on the situation you're facing, you could try one of the following:
- Determine a fixed background picture and filter it out to get signal
- Turn the whole thing "black and white" based on the color of the text to simplify the image
- As above, but then apply a smoothing algorithm to the shapes (counting neighboring on/off pixels has worked well for something I did in the past)
- Compare two or three adjacent video frames and look for areas with changes, in an attempt to isolate moving text

@mkopriva SO is for aiding programmers. I am helping make code better by giving advice based on my experience. Even though my comments might seem ranty, they are justified by solid arguments. — gonutz 21 secs ago

@JoelHarmon Thanks for taking the time to reply :) I hadn't considered DSP actually. There's also AI.SE, on which image recognition is on topic. I guess I wondered about asking here as the question I had in my mind was about choosing a design; whether that's plain OCR, computer vision, signal processing or something else
Less of a 'learning materials request' (which I'm sure is as off-topic here as it is elsewhere) than a 'how do I know if what I want to do is feasible, and how would I decide on an approach'
But it still felt kinda broad/vague and possibly-not-on-topic so wasn't sure
There might be a couple of interesting questions for DSPSE and AISE that come out of this in any case
Cheers again :)

I’ve spent the better part of the last decade immersed in the world of technology. I could give a lengthy lecture on the history of LIDAR and the future of self-driving cars. I could explain what’s so fascinating about artificial intelligence that can beat humans in poker and why we shouldn’t be afraid of robot overlords just yet. I’ve got a cocktail party’s worth of witty things to say about the potential for brain-computer interfaces and our very cybernetic future. Despite all my years as a journalist covering technology, however, the closest I got to working on the code that makes all  …

This sounds/looks like a homework assignment. It might not be, but it sure has the appearance of being homework. "3. Questions asking for homework help must include a summary of the work you've done so far to solve the problem, and a description of the difficulty you are having solving it.". The current state of your question doesn't fulfill these requirements. Please edit the question to improve it. Please, also read this Open letter to students with homework problems. — Makyen 7 secs ago

I think if you reword this question to not be opinion based, and ask it on softwareengineering.stackexchange.com you'll get a better discussion. I.e., what patterns exist to avoid duplicate models in REST api design? github.com/micronaut-projects/micronaut-data is another way of doing it — hmatt1 40 secs ago
