We present a novel approach for solving the text segmentation problem in natural scene images. The proposed algorithm uses the normalized graph cut(Ncut) as the measure for spectral clustering, and the weighted matrices used in evaluating the graph cuts are based on the gray levels of an image, rather than the commonly used image pixels. Thus, the proposed algorithm requires much smaller spatial costs and much lower computation complexity. Experiments show the superior performance of the proposed method compared to the typical thresholding algorithms.
