What happens if we see a suitable font for our design work but we do not know its name? Visual Font Recognition (VFR) systems are used to identify the font typeface in an image. These systems can assist graphic designers in identifying fonts used in images. A VFR system also aids in improving the speed and accuracy of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems. In this paper, we proposed the first publicly available datasets in the field of Persian font recognition and employed Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) to address the Persian font recognition problem. The results show that the proposed pipeline obtained 78.0% top-1 accuracy on our new datasets, 89.1% in the IDPL- PFOD dataset, and 94.5% in the KAFD dataset. Furthermore, the average time spent in the entire pipeline for one sample of our proposed datasets is 0.54 and 0.017 seconds for CPU and GPU, respectively. We conclude that CNN methods can be used to recognize Persian fonts without the need for additional pre-processing steps such as feature extraction, binarization, normalization, etc.
