Improved Text Detection from Images using MSER Algorithm

Authors(2) :-Dr. Dilip Sharma, Amit Kumar Pandey

In this paper the text is detected from image using MSER based method along with the image enhancement which results in the improved performance in terms of text detection. In addition, we improve current MSERs by developing a contrast enhancement mechanism that enhances region stability of text patterns to remove the blurring caused during the capture of image Lucy Richardson de blurring Algorithm is used. Finally the accuracy and performance of detected image is improved due to the use of MSER and Lucy Richardson de blurring Algorithm.
