S110: the text in detected image scope, analyzes and determines the region at text place.

As embodiments of the invention, analyze and determine the region at text place, comprising the following steps:

Judge the size of character in image range, and the definition of the character on border, judging area and the character of regional center;

By the region of the same size of character in image range, and the region that the character of zone boundary is consistent with the definition of the character of regional center, be divided into a single region.

Specifically, as shown in Figure 2, be the flow chart that the region at text place is analyzed in the another kind of embodiment of method of auto-focusing of the present invention.

First carry out text detection, printed page analysis 201 is carried out to the area image of the text obtained, judges that whether the space of a whole page is regular, carry out different process according to different judged results.Here the space of a whole page said is regular refers to that character boundary is consistent, and has consistent character sharpness.Should be appreciated that the character boundary one in the present invention makes peace character sharpness unanimously, consistent implication refers to identical, namely not there are differences, or the difference existed is less, and the difference of existence is within predetermined threshold value.Such as, when the difference of the size between character is within predetermined threshold value, think that character boundary is consistent; When the difference of the definition between character is within predetermined threshold value, think that character sharpness is consistent.

Here judge that the regular method of the space of a whole page is, on the one hand, utilize judge the text obtained region in, whether the uniformity coefficient of character boundary consistent.On the other hand, judge in the region of the text obtained, whether character has consistent definition; Concrete determination methods for: judge that in the region of text that obtains, whether definition and the regional center partial character definition of the character of boundary member close.Particularly, analyze and determine the region at text place, comprising the following steps: the size judging character in image range, and the definition of the character on border, judging area and the character of regional center; By the region of the same size of character in image range, and the region that the character of zone boundary is consistent with the definition of the character of regional center, be divided into a single region.If above-mentioned analysis result display: in the region of obtained text, character boundary is consistent, and has consistent definition, both meets, is then focused as a whole in the region of the text, i.e. single text filed focusing.

In the process of text detection, printed page analysis, utilize binaryzation information or marginal information, the positional information and elevation information that obtain character can be analyzed, and then positional information and the elevation information of obtained character can be utilized, whether character boundary in region is unanimously judged.Particularly, utilize character location information, on original color image or gray level image, can calculating character definition.Here the method that Analysis of Contrast, histogram analysis or ambiguity are analyzed can be adopted, as definition evaluation method.

If above-mentioned analysis result display: in the region of obtained text, character boundary is inconsistent, and namely in region, character boundary difference is comparatively large, then text is carried out cutting text block 202, namely by zoning, make character boundary in each text block consistent; Then to the different text block marked off, the multifocal technology that employing is mentioned below is focused, i.e. how text filed focusing.
