In this paper, we propose a text detection algorithm which is hybrid and multi-scale. First, it relies on a connected component-based approach: After the segmentation of the image, a classification step using a new wavelet descriptor spots the letters. A new graph modeling and its traversal procedure allow to form candidate text areas. Second, a(More)
A frequent challenge for many Text Understanding Systems is to tackle the variety of text characteristics in born-digital and natural scene images to which current OCRs are not well adapted. For example, texts in perspective are frequently present in real-word images, but despite the ability of some detectors to accurately localize such text objects, the(More)
