DESCRIPTION

We develop and market Geo Comix a Computer-Assisted Translation software (CAT) specialised in comics, built above the Geo AI module, which extracts geometric and textual semantics from comics (panel, bubbles, text etc.). Comics are a multimodal medium, a symbiosis between images and text, enriched by the assumed participation of the reader. While many focus on its graphical dimension, the textual interaction is equally important: the text conveys! The standard for most comics, is for text to be written entirely in UPPER CASE. This deprives us of the possibility to describe the semantics of this symbiosis and can be the source of many ambiguities.

The main goal is to restore the typographical richness of full uppercase texts (obtained via OCR) depending on a given context:

- Converting the text to lower case in an intelligent way (keep the names, surnames, events,…) in uppercase.
- Dealing with missing or confusing punctuation (acronyms, onomatopoeia).
