abstract= {This is a synthetically generated dataset, in which word instances are placed in natural scene images, while taking into account the scene layout.

The dataset consists of *800 thousand* images with approximately *8 million* synthetic word instances. Each text instance is annotated with its text-string, word-level and character-level bounding-boxes.},
