Paper to PDA


A system is described for the automatic analysis of a document image into atomic fragments (e.g. word images) that can be reconstructed or "reflowed" onto a display device of arbitrary size, depth, and aspect ratio. The main intent is to allow scans and other page-image documents to be viewed effectively on a limited-resolution hand-held computing device, without any errors and losses due to OCR and retype-setting. The methods of image analysis and representation are described.
