An enhanced text detection technique (ETDT) is proposed, which is expected to aid the visually impaired to overcome their reading challenges. This work enhances the edge-preserving maximally stable extremal regions (eMSER) algorithm using the pyramid histogram of oriented gradients (PHOG). Histogram of oriented gradients (HOG) derived from different pyramid levels is important while detecting maximally stable extremal regions (MSER) in the ETDT approach because it gives more spatial information… CONTINUE READING
