Abstract: Photo taking has become a new input means for text recognition due to its high efficiency and little training required. However, photos are not directly ready for OCR software to recognize because three problems are seriously affecting the quality of photos; they are complex background, blur and motion blur. The research project focuses on the development of methodologies to preprocess photos such that OCR performance will be improved. Various methods are proposed to enhance or restore photos; they are proven to provide promising results.
