Natural scene text detection and recognition (Text in the Wild)

Insanely fast and accurate lexicon-free end-to-end text recognition in natural scenes (in the wild) using deep learning.

The models are trained and optimized for text on natural scene. Scanned documents work fine but it's not our priority.
This beta version has some limitations: No support for handwritten or curved (e.g. circular) text. Also, any latin-based language (e.g. french, spanish, italian...) may work but the LSTM recognition engine was trained for english only while the detector is agnostic. We'll add script and language detection to improve the accuracy in the near future.
