Do you know any text detection software, from images or videos, available as a demo or video demo? Please give me some links.

Edit:
better with some paper and it's realization.

Edit2:
I want to implement the text detection algorithm from video or images. I see many papers but it is hard to implement them, because of using neural network or SVM - need training. Others anyway will take some time, and I wanna know if it is possible to try the method and then to implement if it is ok.

Edit3: (from comments)
Sorry for my poor explanation, but what I mean is that I want a special program (source code or paper with source code) that can extract text regions from an image. Or video. And then I can use some OCR engine.

I'd link you to Google but that would be rude. – Hasaan Chop May 11 '10 at 0:52

ok, your second edit and your comment on Wayne's answer is much clearer. i've added the comment into the question body as a third edit. – quack quixote May 13 '10 at 1:09

I have trouble understanding the question, but I think you are looking for academic papers on optical character recognition and for software that implements (realizes) it. I found the following links by googling "OCR open source".

Recognizing images in video is harder, judging by the smaller number of links I found. I suggest looking for academic papers using the term Video OCR on Google Scholar. I did find one link you may find helpful.

Good luck with your research.
