Text localization in born-digital images is usually performed using methods designed for scene text images. Based on the observation that text strokes in born-digital images mostly have complete contours and the pixels on the contours have high contrast compared with the adjacent non-text pixels, we propose a method to extract candidate text components… CONTINUE READING
