the method

TextSpotter performs end-to-end scene text localization and recognition in real time.

Our new pipeline, TextSpotter 2015, exploits the novel FASText detector described in "Busta M., Neumann L., Matas J.: FASText: Efficient Unconstrained Scene Text Detector, ICCV 2015" [pdf].

Our original pipeline, TextSpotter 2013, is based on the (MS)ER detector and it is entirely described in our journal paper "Neumann L., Matas J.: Real-time Lexicon-free Scene Text Localization and Recognition, TPAMI, 2015" [pdf].
