Character-Like Region Verification for Extracting Text in Scene Images


This paper proposes a method of identifying characterlike regions in order to extract and recognize characters in natural color scene images automatically. A$er connected component extraction based on multi-group decomposition scheme, alignment analysis is used to check the block candidates, namely, the character-like regions in each binary image layer and… (More)
