I tried the simplest thing: select by color, clicking on the text, and
it selected the text and only the text. Then I copied the selection and
pasted it back on a white background in a new layer.
Image/Colors/Desaturate makes it black on white; or you could change the
image mode to grayscale. Or you could paste the original selection on a
transparent background ... (or even into a new image).
Is this what you were looking for?
