Informative benchmarks are crucial for optimizing the page segmentation step of an OCR system, frequently the performance limiting step for overall OCR system performance. We show that current evaluation scores are insufficient for diagnosing specific errors in page segmentation and fail to identify some classes of serious segmentation errors altogether. This paper introduces a vectorial score that is sensitive to, and identifies, the most important classes of segmentation errors (over, under… CONTINUE READING
