I have been working on text detection and recognition for almost two months and new on this field. So far, I have fine-tuned, tested, and trained several text detection/recognition methods, such as CRAFT, TextFuseNet, CharNet for detection, and clova.ai model for recognition. Now I come up with this question:

  • Can object detection approaches(yolov5,efficientDet) be used to solve text/detection problems?

    $\begingroup$ Hello. Let me try to understand if I understood your concerns/problem. You have used text detection methods for text detection. Now, you want to use object detection methods for text detection. You're asking if that will work? If this is correct, why do you want to use object detection methods/models for text detection? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hello. It's a suggestion from my supervisor, and now I am stuck with these ideas. I wanted to know if there is someone already experienced this kind of task. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Ok, then rather than asking "Is object detection right way for text detection/recognition?", it would be better to ask "can object detection approaches be used to solve text/detection problems?". $\endgroup$
