An integrated OCR system for mathematical documents, called INFTY, is presented. INFTY consists of four procedures, i.e., layout analysis, character recognition, structure analysis of mathematical expressions, and manual error correction. In those procedures, several novel techniques are utilized for better recognition performance. Experimental results on about 500 pages of mathematical documents showed high character recognition rates on both mathematical expressions and ordinary texts, and… CONTINUE READING
