Text detection in natural scene images is a hot and challenging problem in pattern recognition and computer vision. Considering the complex situations in natural scene images, we propose a robust two-steps method in this paper based on multi-layer segmentation and higher order Conditional Random Field (CRF). Given an input image, the method separates text from its background by using multi-layer segmentation, which decomposes the input image into nine layers. Then, the connected components (CCs… CONTINUE READING
