    The high street cash dispenser or automated teller machine (ATM) was one of the major technological successes of the eighties. A recent major advance in the development of the ATM has been to extend the range of services available to the consumer to include payment transactions eg. bill payment and cheque deposit. These additional services now make it possible for as ATM to provide the consumer wi... View full abstract»

    The aim of the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) is to fill every available higher education course in the UK with the most appropriate students as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. With increasing numbers of applicants, realising this vision will mean delivering student application forms electronically to all the institutions it serves, which involves moving from a paper...

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (640 KB)

    The Microcosm architecture has been extended to provide a framework for content based navigation and retrieval from non-text media. Exemplar modules for use with images, video and sound have been implemented to provide some basic general purpose CBN and CBR facilities. Examples of experimental hypermedia systems which the authors are developing using the Microcosm/MAVIS software include a product ... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):16/1 - 16/7
    Cited by:  Patents (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (516 KB)

    There is a significant and growing need to convert documents from printed paper to an electronic form. Document image analysis is concerned with the segmentation of the document image into regions of interest, their description, and the classification of the regions according to the type of their contents. A new unified approach to page segmentation and classification, based on the description of ... View full abstract»

    Distributed multimedia information systems (DMIS) are the emerging technology which provide its users with the facility to exchange compound documents comprising of text, images, graphics and sound. They mainly consist of clusters of workstations linked via networks. These systems cater for store-and-forward and/or real-time information. Recent developments in distributed computing and application... View full abstract»

    Until recently, a lot of document image processing (DIP) research has concentrated on the recognition of characters and shapes in document. Whilst the problems of text only based documents have largely been solved, there is a greater need to address the image processing problems posed by mixed-media or multimedia documents. Such documents, commonly referred to as compound documents containing a mi... View full abstract»

  • A computationally efficient technique for discriminating between hand-written and printed text

    During the processing of documents from a range of sources, it is useful to be able to discriminate documents with hand-written text from those with printed text. This allows the two to be processed in different ways; for example the typed text using a high speed automated OCR reader and the hand-written text manually, so optimising the use of the expensive OCR reading machine. The paper describes... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (388 KB)

    Ancient documents suffer from many types of degradation, ranging from dirt and staining to damage and fading. Also archaeological and historical texts are hand written. This article explains how hidden Markov models may be used in the image processing of these documents View full abstract»

  • A configurable toolkit approach to handwritten forms recognition

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):2/1 - 2/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (812 KB)

    Describes a software architecture for configuring and integrating a toolkit of standard OCR components with user-specified form-specific contextual knowledge. The authors illustrate the use of the toolkit by describing two different handwritten form applications, a DSS-P14 tax form and an insurance proposal form. They show the architecture of the overall system, the components required to build it... View full abstract»

  • Interaction with documents using video scanning and projection

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):18/1 - 18/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (456 KB)

    The paper describes recent work towards a desk-top environment for the interactive manipulation of paper and electronic forms of documents, with an emphasis placed on its physical realisation. We present the methods used for calibration of the camera-projector system and outline a few applications that are made possible with the use of this particular multimedia environment View full abstract»

    The commercial need to computerise contours of objects has intensified over recent years as more and more applications endeavour to seek the benefits of visualisation. The primary aim has been to gain a computerised model which closely resembles the original shape and form. The digital form lends itself to be processed by fast processors, and their output to be displayed on graphic devices such as... View full abstract»

  • Low- and high-level approaches to optical music score recognition

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):3/1 - 3/6
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (456 KB)

    The computer has become an increasingly important device in music. It can not only generate sound but is also able to perform time consuming and repetitive tasks, such as transposition and part extraction, with speed and accuracy. However, a score must be represented in a machine readable format before any operation can be carried out. Current input methods, such as using an electronic keyboard, a... View full abstract»

  • Rapid searching of massive dictionaries given uncertain inputs

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):12/1 - 12/8
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (488 KB)

    A new method of searching large dictionaries given uncertain inputs is described, based on the lazy evaluation of a syntactic neural network (SNN). The new method is shown to significantly outperform a conventional tree-based method for large dictionaries (e.g. in excess of 100000 entries). Results are presented for the problem of recognising UK postcodes using dictionary sizes of up to 1 million ... View full abstract»

  • Text block recognition from TIFF images

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (584 KB)

    The reproduction of a scanned document should include not only the optical character recognition of text, but also the structure of that text on the page and the appearance of that text itself (i.e. font recognition). This is paper presents an algorithm which structurally recognises the text of a page image. The method is based upon the “Docstrum plot” algorithm by L.O'Gorman (1993). M... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (272 KB)

    Current credit cards store about 140 bytes of information on a magnetic stripe over three tracks. A system has been devised to store and retrieve more than 2 kbytes on a card while maintaining compatibility with current cards. To achieve this a combination of a multi-track read head and new soft decision techniques have been used View full abstract»

    It is widely accepted that, with large databases, the key to good performance is effective data-clustering. In any large document database clustering is essential for efficient search, browse and therefore retrieval. Cluster analysis allows the identification of groups, or clusters, of similar objects in multi-dimensional space. Conventional document retrieval systems involve the matching of a que...
