Glyphs

As previously discussed glyphs are regions (rectangular or polygonal) on you image that represent one or more symbols in one or more languages.  After the glyph are has been identified, click on any glyph in the image to edit it. The following dialog will be shown over the image:

1. Language

From the combo box you can chose the language you believe the glyph in image 7 belongs to. Changing the language will also update the category menu 2 and the symbol table 3. You can assign symbols from multiple languages to a glyph, but when you will send them to be translated the glyphs will be grouped by languages.

2. Category

Use this combo to filter the symbols shown in table 3. Because some languages have many symbols they have been grouped into categories. Select a category that you think the glyph in image 7 belongs to. 

3. Symbols

Table 3 will show the symbols for the language in 1 and for the selected category 2. All that you need to do is click on a symbol and it will be shown in 4. Then you can modify it's confidence value to add it to the list of symbols that belong to the glyph.

4. Symbol View

When you select a symbol from table 3 or when you iterate through the glyph's symbols by using the arrows at 6 that symbol will appear in box 4. The image here is that of the symbols as it is represented under a specific font for the language. 

5. Confidence

Each symbol assigned to the glyph has a confidence value between 0 and 100. The confidence represents how much you think the glyph is that symbol. It is especially useful for glyphs that may be erased to a certain extent.

To add a new symbol to the glyph just select that symbol and modify it's confidence value. To remove a symbol from the glyph modify it's confidence value to be 0. You will notice that the glyphs color in the image will change according to the confidence level of the symbols assigned to your glyph.

6. Glyph's symbols

Use the arrows here to quickly move through the symbols assigned to the glyph. You will notice that image symbol, confidence, language, category an symbol table will be updated according to the symbol.

7. Original image

Picture 7 represents the bounding box of the glyph from the original image resized a bit. It is useful so you can check that the corresponding matched symbol is correct.

8. Deleting a glyph

All you need to do is to press the Remove Glyph button and your glyph will be erased from the image.

When removing a glyph, that glyph instance will be removed from any word that it was currently assigned to.
