Text detection by BG
Automatic BG seed selection
where B is the structring element (3 by-3 square), M is the binary image where bg seeds are ones and X is the gray level input image
The proposed system removes 87% of the non-text regions where on average
91% of the test set contains non-text regions. It retains approximately %98 of text regions.
ocr : 15.6 ± 0.4
Bow + ocr : 39.0 ± 2.6
Bow : 32.9 ± 1.7
suitable approach for scene
using background connectivity
and, color, contrast and
objectness cues is proposed.
