Understanding document images uploaded on social media is challenging because of multiple types like handwritten, printed and scene text images. This study presents a new model called Deep Fuzzy based MSER for classification of multiple document images (like handwritten, printed and scene text). The proposed model detects candidate components that represent dominant information irrespective of the type of document images by combining fuzzy and MSER in a novel way. For every candidate component, the proposed model extracts distance-based features which result in proximity matrix (feature matrix). Further, the deep learning model is proposed for classification by feeding input images and feature matrix as input. To evaluate the proposed model, we create our own dataset and to show effectiveness, the proposed model is tested on standard datasets. The results show that the proposed approach outperforms the existing methods in terms of average classification rate.
