Segmentation of warped text lines

opencv-users mailing list
I am trying to segment warped text lines found in photos taken from a page
of a book (from the camera of a smartphone). This is meant as a
preprocessing step before running OCR on them.


I have found two relevant papers on this:


https://sites.google.com/a/iupr.com/bukhari/home/papers/Bukhari-Coupled-Snakelets-IJDAR12.pdf?attredirects=0


https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Rafael_Lins/publication/221000335_An_Efficient_Algorithm_for_Segmenting_Warped_Text-Lines_in_Document_Images/links/0fcfd5063a49cc779c000000.pdf?origin=publication_detail


The papers are hard to implement, can anyone help?
