Abstract: Now a day’s reading words in unimpeded and noisy images is a not an easy problem. Also extracting words or text from natural scenes or videos is very difficult thing. So we should have some mechanism to recognize the text from images and videos. In this paper an effort has been taken to focus the progress made so far in the character feature of scene text recognition system and an overview of technological prospective of scene text recognition systems are discussed. In Text recognition, feature extraction required much attention because recognition performance heavily depends on it.
