In the paper on "Text Extraction in Natural Scenes using Region-based Method", the authors Zhihu Huang and Jinsong Leng proposed a region-based text extraction method which has the improved Stroke Width
Transform has computing complexities and more accurate.
To do this, Naptha uses Microsoft Research's Stroke Width
Transform (SWT), a very fast and simple algorithm that relies on the fact that fonts usually have a fairly uniform stroke width
, and are thus easy to pick out.
4 In actual cutting, the number of strokes is limited according to the cutter lead and stroke width
While coloring you select color and stroke width
from the palette, view the source image, or share your artwork via email, Facebook, Twitter, and more.
2) In machine-printed, the stroke width
in a character depends upon the type and size of font used.
A thicker stroke width
creates more ink per area: For example old style typefaces have thicker stroke widths
and less contrast between thick and thin strokes (Bringhurst, 2002, Mozina, 2003).
In conclusion, the findings of the present study indicate that the breathing action of female swimmers in front crawl swimming significantly increased the duration of the total underwater pull, while no alterations were observed in the stroke width
For optical character recognition (OCR) or verification, the rule of thumb is that stroke width
of the smallest character should be at least 3 pixels wide.
Designing with strokes is now more powerful and flexible than ever: users can control stroke width
at any point along a path, align dashes to corners and path ends, add accurately placed arrowheads directly from the Stroke panel and control how brushes stretch along a path.
The rest of the paper is organized as follows: Section 2 describes the algorithm to compute the stroke width
Using pressure to define stroke width
gives graphic artists the same gestural freedom to sketch or draw as they would with traditional tools.
Considered to be the first successful sans serif typeface based on the humanist models of the Renaissance, Gill Sans offers a more pronounced contrast in stroke widths
than most serifless fonts, resulting in a design that's been judged as more appealing to the eye, and ultimately more readable than monoweight alternatives.
