This paper proposes a robust single-image super-resolution method for enlarging low quality camera captured text image. The contribution of this work is twofold. First, we point out the non-local reconstruction problem in neighbor embedding based super-resolution by statistical analysis on an empirical data set. Second, we introduce a local consistency constraint to explicitly regularize the linear reconstruction process, and adaptively generate the most possible candidates for the high-resolution image patch. For the non-consistent candidates, we rely on its adjacent overlapping patches for capability verification. Experimental results demonstrate that our solution produces visually pleasing enlargements for various text images.
