Hello, I' m new in Opencv programing and image processing.

I 'm trying to segment an image containing the front page of a newspaper. I would like to retrieve only the head titles in order to apply OCR tesseract. I have already tried MSER blob detection, Stroke Width Transform and Robust Text detection with poor results:

I m using Opencv and Python. What would be a possible image processing pipeline for detecting text regions containing a font size of 20 or 25?

Thank you for your advice and help.

I'm not a developer, i always use the free online ocr to recognize and scan text from image.
