COCO-Text is a large dataset designed for text detection and recognition. This is a Python API that assists in loading, parsing and visualizing the annotations. The format of the COCO-Text annotations is also described on the project website.

In addition to this API, please download both the MSCOCO images, available on the MSCOCO project website and the text annotations from the coco-text website.

This dataset is based on Microsoft COCO. Please visit for more information on COCO, including the image data, object annotatins and caption annotations.

After downloading the images and annotations run the Python demo for example usage.
