You do not need to "convert" a character. What you need is called OCR.

What you need is called OCR — Optical Character Recognition. Please see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optical_character_recognition[^].
 
For starters on OCR with OpenCV, please see this nice and short article:
http://blog.damiles.com/2008/11/basic-ocr-in-opencv/[^].
 
You can find some more:

Good luck,
