No, no one can read text from a gif. In the GIMP there is no such thing as
text, in the sense of characters that can be recognized within an image. The
GIMP manipulates pixels, not characters. Images, not text.
Now if you have a layer that has only text in it, you can manipulate that
layer separately, which is what it appears you are trying to do, but as far as
the GIMP is concerned, the text is still just pixels, not letters.
