About

Detecting and reading text in natural images (also referred to as Scene Text or text in the wild) has been a central problem in scene understanding with applications ranging from helping visually impaired people navigate city scenes to product search and retrieval, and instant translation. Scene Text is typically broken down into two successive tasks: (1) text detection attempts to localize characters, words or lines, and (2) text recognition aims to transcribe their content.
