Additional Information

Optical character recognition (OCR) is the process of converting the document images into an editable electronic format. We started with the problem of developing 'OpenOCRCorrect', an end-to-end framework for error detection and corrections in Indic-OCR. Our models outperform state-of-the-art results in 'Error Detection in Indic-OCR' for six Indic languages with varied inflections and we have solved the out of vocabulary problem for “Error Correction in Indic-OCR” in our ICDAR-2017 conference paper. The demo video for our framework is The model should be able to detect text with maximum level accuracy and should be able to draw bounding boxes on each line of the text. Further, in the digitization process of such texts, the second step would be spelling correction and formatting of the text detected by the OCR models.
'ICDAR 2019 Post-OCR competition': Our team "CLAM" secured 2nd position in the multilingual PostOCR competition at ICDAR'19. Our model achieved the highest corrections of 44% in Finnish, which is significantly higher than the overall topper (8% in Finnish).
