In this paper we present a two-level method to detect text in natural scene images. In the first level, connected components (referred as CCs) are got from the images. Then candidate text lines are extracted and groups of connected components that align in horizontal or vertical direction are got. We think CCs in these groups have high probability are texts. To validate which CC is text, a SVM is trained to make an initial decision. The output of SVM is calibrated to posterior probability. Then… CONTINUE READING
