MSR: Multi-Scale Shape Regression for Scene Text Detection [article]

Chuhui Xue, Shijian Lu, Wei Zhang
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The proposed MSR detects scene texts by predicting dense text boundary points that inherently capture the location and shape of text lines accurately and are also more tolerant to the variation of text  ...  State-of-the-art scene text detection techniques predict quadrilateral boxes that are prone to localization errors while dealing with straight or curved text lines of different orientations and lengths  ...  The large scale variation often leads to miss detection for ultra-small text instances or broken detection for ultra-large text instances.  ...
