Line and Word Segmentation of a Printed Text Document

Abstract

Segmenting accurately a script document to extract various features that the document contains is a very challenging work and a need concerted effort. Continuous research works are in field to make the segmenting process simple and efficient. A simple segmenting technique for a line and word segmentation of a script document has been proposed. In this space recognition technique the main objective is to recognize the spaces that separate two text lines and the similar procedure is followed for the word segmentation procedure. Three different scanned document have been taken as input images for line and word segmentation experiment and result found were promising, with average accuracy for line and word were, 100% for line segmentation and 100% for line segmentation as well.
