This paper presents a new algorithm for Braille cells recognition using image processing technique. Scanned Braille document is composed from three classes of gray-level: (i) background, (ii) recto dots, and (iii) verso dots. We segment the Braille image using a stability thresholding method with a mixture of Beta distributions. To ensure correct detection and extraction of dots composing Braille cells, a grid is formed to contain the Braille dots. We identified a recto dot by a light region… CONTINUE READING
