Text Recognition with CRNN-CTC Network


Extracting text of various sizes, shapes, and orientations from images is an essential problem in many contexts, especially in e-commerce, augmented reality assistance systems, and content moderation in social media platforms. To tackle this problem, one needs to accurately extract the text from images.

Basically, text extraction can be achieved into two steps, i.e., text detection and text recognition or by training a single model to achieve both text detection and recognition like: A single Neural Network for Text Detection and Text Recognition.

In this post, I will mainly be explaining the former approach.
