Automatic text detection in video sequences remains a challenging problem due to the variety of sizes, colors and the presence of complex background. In this paper, we attempt to solve this problem by proposing a robust detection-validation schema for text localization in Arabic news video. Candidate text regions are first detected by using a hybrid method which combines MSER detector and edge information. Then, these regions are grouped using morphological operators. Finally, a verification
