Demo of Form Processing tool
Developed by the Pattern Recognition and Applications group of the University of Cagliari
Contact person: Prof. Fabio Roli
The goal of the project was to develop a form processing system to read the text input by users into the fields of document forms (like tax payment forms), from scanned images of them.
The functionality of our tool is the following:
In this demo we use the image of a clean Italian tax payment form with some fields already filled out (stamp of the post office, name of the tax payer and three "codeline" fields at the bottom of the form), and generate an artificial image representing a noisy, scanned copy of a filled out paper version of the same form.
The user can choose:
In this demo we show the resulting artificial noisy scanned image, and the results of its processing by our tool: the same image after skew correction, the position of the localized fields, and the image of each localized field after pre-printed text and lines removal and user text reconstruction.
