In this paper, we present a novel technique for localization of caption text in video frames based on noise inconsistencies. Text is artificially added to the video after it has been captured and as such does not form part of the original video graphics. Typically, the amount of noise level is uniform across the entire captured video frame, thus, artificially embedding or overlaying text on the video introduces yet another segment of noise level. Therefore detection of various noise levels in the video frame may signify availability of overlaid text. Hence we exploited this property by detecting regions with various noise levels to localize overlaid text in video frames. Experimental results obtained shows a great improvement in line with overlaid text localization, where we have performed metric measure based on Recall, Precision and f-measure.
