There are printed artistic documents where text lines of a single page may not be parallel to each other. These text lines may have different orientations or the text lines may be curved shapes. For the optical character recognition (OCR) of these documents, we need to extract such lines properly. In this paper, we propose a novel scheme, mainly based on(More)

In this paper, we present a scheme towards the segmen-tation of English multi-oriented touching strings into individual characters. When two or more characters touch, they generate a big cavity region at the background portion. Using Convex Hull information, we use these background information to find some initial points to segment a touching string into(More)

Graphical document such as map consists of text lines which appear in different orientation. Sometimes, characters in a single word may follow a curvi-linear way to annotate the graphical curve lines. For recognition of such(More)
