This paper presents the results of the first Challenge of ICDAR 2011 Robust Reading Competition. Challenge 1 is focused on the extraction of text from born-digital images, specifically from images found in Web pages and emails. The challenge was organized in terms of three tasks that look at different stages of the process: text localization, text segmentation and word recognition. In this paper we present the results of the challenge for all three tasks, and make an open call for continuous participation outside the context of ICDAR 2011.doi:10.1109/icdar.2011.295 dblp:conf/icdar/KaratzasMMNR11 fatcat:pp3kcsp3fbhqpjwki5uomvpbpa
