In this paper, one novel approach for text detection in video frames, which is based on bootstrap artificial neural network (BANN) and CED operator, is proposed. This method first uses a new color image edge operator (CED) to segment the image and achieve the elementary candidate text block. And then the neural network is introduced into the further classification of the text blocks and the non-text blocks in video frames. The idea of bootstrap is introduced into the training of the ANN, thus
