Description: First, we extract character candidates using extremal regions (ER) Second, we verify the extracted character candidates with the character classifier trained by Agile Learning. Afterwards, we do text-patch matching which greatly enhances the recall rate, and group the characters into text regions. Finally, we apply a deep neural network for character recognition. For tracking the text regions, we combined "detection by tracking" and "tracking by detection".
