Convert plotter vector fonts to text

We have AutoCAD drawings that their source is vector files (HPGL). We have converted them to AutoCAD format (DXF/DWG) but the texts in the drawings are still vectors (composed of lines only)

We need a program that will recognize the texts and will convert the vector fonts to standard fonts

The program may use AutoCAD (2000 or 2005) or can be executed from AutoCAD

We prefer a VBA program that runs inside AutoCAD

The drawings should be modified as follows:

1. The vector fonts should be moved to a different dedicated layer

2. The text fonts should be generated in a different dedicated layer. The default font that will be used is Curier New with size closest to the size of the original vector fonts but the operator may overide the font parameters

Comments:

1. The vector texts are basic latin ASCII characters (hex 21-7e)

3. The vector texts are in different sizes, different fonts and different aspect ratio. The text direction may have an angle.

4. The program can assume that a sample of characters in each font is available
