Abstract

A method for the fronto-parallel recovery of paragraphs of text under full perspective transformation is presented. The horizontal vanishing point of the text plane is found using an extension of 2D projection profiles. This allows the accurate segmentation of the lines of text. Analysis of the lines will then reveal the style of justification of the paragraph, and provide an estimate of the vertical vanishing point of the plane. The text is finally recovered to a fronto-parallel view suitable for OCR or other higher-level recognition.
