Abstract: In this talk, a new framework for detecting text from webpage and email images is presented. The original image is split into multiple layer images based on the maximum gradient difference (MGD) values. Connected component processing and text detection are performed in each layer of images. A novel texture descriptor named as T-LBP, is proposed to further filter out non-text candidates with a trained SVM classifier. The ICDAR 2011 born-digital image dataset is used to evaluate and demonstrate the performance of the proposed algorithm. Following the same performance evaluation criteria, the proposed method outperforms the winner algorithm of the ICDAR 2011 Robust Reading Competition Challenge 1.
