In order to remove text from an image , i suggest u to use Adobe Photoshop Software which is an Image Editing Software can really help u out of that.

1.First u open ur Jpg image file or other in Photoshop.
2.Then select Clone Stamp tool from the Tool Bar which is located on left side of the Photoshop window.
3.Then select the pixels from any particular area of the image - (Alt + Click) and paste - (ctrl +v) it on the text which seems like that there was no text in the image before.B'coz the copied pixels will replace the text and matches it with the background of the image.
4.Try adjusting the Brush size according to ur need if u wish to.
5. I hope u can get the result from these one.

Otherwise u go to Adobe Photoshop Help menu.There u can find some tutorials expalining one by one tool clearly to make u understand easily.

Imho, if you could post an example I could help you.
It really depends on your image. Every case has an individual approach.

Very hard to help without images.

But, I think a good method is to use the 'Cloning' tool.

Another method is to copy a port of the image that is similar to text background on another layer that will be above the original image.
Place it above the text then use layer masks to adjusts it's transparency so that it blends seamlessly into your original image and covers the text.
