Text in images and video frames carries important information for visual content understanding and retrieval. In this paper, by using multiscale wavelet features, we propose a novel coarse-to-fine algorithm that is able to locate text lines even under complex background. First, in the coarse detection, after the wavelet energy feature is calculated to locate all possible text pixels, a density-based region growing method is developed to connect these pixels into regions which are further… CONTINUE READING
