A start towards Capstone Project

I know there are a lot of threads related to this topic and I have read all of them but still, I am confused about how to start with the Capstone project. I have read the AIBharat article related to this project and I got an idea about project structure but I am struggling to implement or get a start about it. Like how should I start writing code for what? Also, the dataset provided is confusing for me. Can any mentor or any other participant doing or completed the project just give a pseudo approach/steps on how to start off with the project?

Basically, you are given the following datasets:

  • Text Detection dataset for Devanagari script (used by languages like Hindi, Marathi, etc.)
  • Text Recognition dataset for Devanagari
  • Transliteration dataset for Hindi to English script conversion

You are supposed to build the following system:

Given an image from a sign-board, say tea stall banner near your home or a railway station board in Hindi, you are supposed to extract the Devanagari Text in it and translate it to English.

Hence, you will first have to train a text detector & recognizer for Hindi as suggested here.
You can even use those repos / code as starting point.

Before that, you are encouraged to read up on how people generally go about building text detection and text recognition models using deep learning.
