In order to capture the content of an imaged document but avoid the time-consuming full-scale OCR which is fragile to handle touching characters, a fast and segmentation- free keyword spotting method is proposed in this paper. The keyword spotting method is based on word shape coding technique. The proposed coding scheme has little ambiguity, and can be swiftly executed. It is a promising technique to boost better document image retrieval. The strength of the proposed method is demonstrated in… CONTINUE READING
