Abstract: In this paper, we explore new edge features such as straightness for the elimination of non significant edges from the segmented text portion of a video frame to detect accurate boundary of the text lines in video images. To segment the complete text portions, the method introduces candidate text block selection from a given image. Heuristic rules are formed based on combination of filters and edge analysis for identifying a candidate text block in the image. Furthermore, the same rules are extended to grow boundary of candidate text block in order to segment complete text portions in the image. The experimental results of the proposed method show that the method outperforms an existing method in terms of a number of metrics. © 2008 IEEE.
