One of the important reasons for poor recognition rate in optical character recognition (OCR) system is the error in character segmentation. Existence of different type of characters in the scanned documents is a major problem to design an effective character segmentation procedure. In this paper, a new technique is presented for identification and segmentation of Bengali printed characters. This paper focuses on the segmentation of printed Bengali characters for efficient recognition of the… CONTINUE READING
