Abstract : This work focuses on the assessment of characters recognition results produced automatically by optical character recognition software (OCR on mass digitization projects. The goal is to design a global control system robust enough to deal with BnF documents collection. This collection includes old documents which are difficult to be treated by OCR. We designed a word detection system to detect missed words defects in OCR results, and a words recognition rate estimator to assess the quality of word recognition results performed by OCR. We create two kinds of descriptors to characterize OCR outputs. Image descriptors to characterize page segmentation results and cross alignment descriptors to characterize the quality of word recognition results. Furthermore, we adapt our learning process to make an adaptive decision or prediction systems. We evaluated our control systems on real images selected randomly from BnF collection. The mmissed word detection system detects 84.15% of words omitted by the OCR with a precision of 94.73%. The experiments performed also showed that 80% of the documents of word recognition rate less than 98% are detected with an accuracy of 92%. It can also automatically detect 45% of the material having a recognition rate less than 70% with greater than 92% accuracy.
