Swipe can grab text from anywhere on the desktop. Window titles, icons,
menu items, Filer windows, etc.

Basically from anything that renders text through OS calls. There are a
number of applications that use their own rendering code and Swipe can't
grab text from them. Such as, bitmap fonts used by ZapRedraw/StrongED,
Oregano, Marcel, etc.
