About this book

This book offers a broad and structured overview of the state-of-the-art methods that could be applied for context-dependent languages like Arabic. It also provides guidelines on how to deal with Arabic scene data that appeared in an uncontrolled environment impacted by different font size, font styles, image resolution, and opacity of text. Being an intrinsic script, Arabic and Arabic-like languages attract attention from research community. There are a number of challenges associated with the detection and recognition of Arabic text from natural images. This book discusses these challenges and open problems and also provides insights into the complexities and issues that researchers encounter in the context of Arabic or Arabic-like text recognition in natural and document images. It sheds light on fundamental questions, such as a) How the complexity of Arabic as a cursive scripts can be demonstrated b) What the structure of Arabic text is and how to consider the features from a given text and c) What guidelines should be followed to address the context learning ability of classifiers existing in machine learning.
