Texts detection from image or complex colored document is a very challenging problem. Text in images and videos contain useful information. There is a significant need to extract and analyze the text in images on Web documents, for effective indexing, semantic analysis and searching. The extraction of text information is very important because texts contain high-level semantic information. In this paper, we proposed a hybrid approach of text segmentation using edge and texture feature information . This result can also be used for other image interpretation and analysis.
