Manga OCR

Optical character recognition for Japanese text, with the main focus being Japanese manga.

It uses Vision Encoder Decoder framework.

Manga OCR can be used as a general purpose printed Japanese OCR, but its main goal was to provide a high quality text recognition, robust against various scenarios specific to manga:

  • both vertical and horizontal text
  • text with furigana
  • text overlaid on images
  • wide variety of fonts and font styles
  • low quality images
