Abstract

Text line segmentation is an important step because inaccurately segmented text lines will cause errors in the recognition stage. Text line segmentation of the handwritten documents is still one of the most complicated problems in developing a reliable OCR. The nature of handwriting makes the process of text line segmentation very challenging. Text characteristics can vary in font, size, orientation, alignment, color, contrast, and background information. These variations turn the process of word detection complex and difficult. Since handwritten text can vary greatly depending on the user skills, disposition and cultural background. The technique of Piece-wise projection alongwith contour tracing to segment a handwritten document into distinct lines of text is presented. The proposed method is robust to handle line fluctuation
