2 choices.
- Memory reading

Autohotkey is lacking in OCR scripts, so;
Memory reading is the easiest, but it's still far too difficult for a novice.

I'm just giving suggestions. I'm not interested in doing any paid work.

You could imagesearch for partial of full letter matches in the selected areas. The trouble would be that iamgesearch takes more than 0 time so getting it to perform all necessary checks done before the window of opportunity passes could be a challenge.

For clarity you would just have a pre-captured picture of each letter/color combination. But if there are 24 letters searching each one would take too long.

FindText or graphicsearch.ahk may be valid alternatives as the screen can be searched for multiple images without re-capturing each time. These however may require some ahk practice.

I don’t know how fast they are falling, but OCR might be too slow. ImageSearch would be too slow to cycle through all the possibilities if it has less than a couple seconds to act, as Chunjee suggested. Perhaps it would be fast enough with some multi-threading. You could either use multiple scripts with each one only checking a handful of letters or use AHK_H’s multi-threading capabilities.
