To detect text from an image with a different background, an adaptive text detection method based on image complexity analysis is proposed. Before text detection, this approach adopts an image complexity analysis step to classify image complexity into three categories: low complexity, middle complexity and high complexity. Then images with different complexity adopt different methods to extract image edges. The proposed text detection method takes a coarse to fine detection strategy which combines the edge-based method, connected component based method and the texture based method into a framework. Experimental results demonstrate the performance of the proposed method.
