I have tried many options till date and still trying I went on with sikuli to capture realtime values in excel, then I worked on tesseract with autoit , but failed. So, I developed a small utility which takes screenshots on timely basis. It is opencv which can fetch values from image and convert it into readable format. It is what my research says.

The screenshot remains the same... Just the encircled value changes with time. It's what I have to capture.

if your text appears at the same position all the time, you don't neeed opencv at all. just crop the approximate text region, and feed it into the ocr of your choice. not an opencv problem. also we cannot help you with excel.

I can't do it in realtime. Moreover excel is only used to paste values I can paste values in clipboard too.
