OpenCV OCR and text recognition with Tesseract

In this tutorial, you will learn how to apply OpenCV OCR (Optical Character Recognition). We will perform both (1) text detection and (2) text recognition using OpenCV, Python, and Tesseract. A few weeks ago I showed you how to perform text detection using OpenCV’s EAST deep learning model. Using this model we were able to […]

Text skew correction with OpenCV and Python

Today’s tutorial is a Python implementation of my favorite blog post by Félix Abecassis on the process of text skew correction (i.e., “deskewing text”) using OpenCV and image processing functions. Given an image containing a rotated block of text at an unknown angle, we need to correct the text skew by: Detecting the block of text in the […]
