Description: This official submission accompanies our paper: Towards End-to-End Unified Scene Text Detection and Layout Analysis. Note that the unified detector model produces line-level masks and a line-wise affinity matrix that groups lines into paragraphs. It is unable to produce word-level detection directly. For evaluation purpose solely, we use heuristics to extract word masks from line masks. Please refer to the source code ( to learn how this is performed.
