Techniques of Text Detection and Recognition: A Survey

Shivani ., Dipti Bansal


The pattern recognition is the technique which is applied on the image to detect similar type of patterns from the image. The text detection and recognition are the techniques of patterns detection. To detect text area in the image techniques of image segmentation is required which will segment the area in which text is present. To mark the text from the image technique of neural networks is required which will learn from the previous values and drive new values on the basis of current network situations. In this paper, various techniques of image segmentation and neural networks has been reviewed and discussed in terms of their outcomes.
