TextSeg

A large-scale fine-annotated and multi-purpose text dataset

TextSeg

Text in the real world is extremely diverse, yet current text dataset does not reflect such diversity very well. To bridge this gap, we proposed TextSeg, a large-scale fine-annotated and multi-purpose text dataset, collecting scene and design text with six types of annotations: word- and character-wise bounding polygons, masks and transcriptions. We also introduce Text Refinement Network (TexRNet), a novel text segmentation approach that adapts to the unique properties of text, e.g. non-convex boundary, diverse texture, etc., which often impose burdens on traditional segmentation models. TexRNet refines results from common segmentation approach via key features pooling and attention, so that wrong-activated text regions can be adjusted. We also introduce trimap and discriminator losses that show significant improvement on text segmentation.
