Skew detection and correction of documents is a problematic step in document image analysis. Many methods have been proposed by researchers for estimating the angle at which a document image is rotated (document skew) in binary image documents. Therefore, this paper aims to evaluate the most frequently skew detection techniques cited in the literature which are (i) Projection Profile Analysis (PP), (ii) Hough Transform (HT) and (iii) Nearest Neighbour (NN). This study points out the weaknesses… CONTINUE READING
