Reading text in the wild

This project helps in localizing and recognizing text in natural images.

To try it:

  • Download their NIPS DLW 2014 models and unzip it.
  • Their MEX code is compiled for a Mac, so we need to recompile it for Linux.
  • Open matconvnet/Makefile. Set the CUDAROOT and MATLABROOT variables to the paths on your system.
  • Run make in matconvnet directory. This builds the MEX files for your system.
  • Now run the runmodels.m script in MATLAB and it should work.
