Training Neumann Matas classifiers

I'm trying to train the classifiers in the scene text detection ( on my own training sets instead of using the default classifiers: trained_classifierNM1.xml and trained_classifierNM2.xml. Any guidance on how to do so would be greatly appreciated. There doesn't seem to be any mention of training on the docs page (or in the code).

I looked at other examples on the web for training classifiers in open CV (, and I think where I'm stumbling is on how to define the weak classifiers. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

You can use the following code to train your own classifiers: I just did it with success. For this process I modified the JTessBoxEditor application so that recognized characters can be cut out, inverted and exported as individual image files. This can save you much time by avoiding cutting out by hand. If you're interested I would upload it somewhere so that you can use it.

I'm currently trying to improve the grouping phase, because I also need to support single characters which are dismissed at the moment. Therefore I tried to train my own erGrouping classifier with the code on Lluis Gomez's GitHub account, but there are no sample images and my results aren't satisfying so far. So I got back to modifying the exhaustive search algorithm...

Update: I finally uploaded the modded jTessBoxEditor to GitHub. Please see my note in the readme on how to invert the images as this is needed to train the erfilter.

Hi, I sent you the code a while ago. Did you get it?

Hi Jaykob, Amazing job! could you send me how did you modified JTessBoxEditor in order to cut out, invert and export the pictures? My email is [email protected] Thanks!

Hi Jaykob, I also try to train my own classifier model with the program from this link but it failed with some error. Can you please send me your code and jTessBoxEditor? Here is my e-mail [email protected]

My bad, Everything is fine once run it in Linux system. Thanks

I know it's very late, but I finally uploaded the jTessBoxEditor to GitHub. Please see my note in the readme on how to invert the images as this is needed to train the erfilter.
