Scene text detection using modified histogram of oriented gradient approach
Somenath Chakraborty and Samir K Bandyopadhyay
With the rapid use of smart phones, digital camera etc we are in a era where it becomes a daily habit to click photos and post it in the internet. The amount of camera capture photos is increasing exponentially and in many photos there is text in it. With the verity of captured images it becomes very difficult to extract text for desired uses. This paper proposes a modified histogram of oriented gradient feature extraction model for detection of text from camera capture images as well as born digital images.
Then we use svm-light for classification of the pattern of the text and our model efficiently performs well on both types of images.
