Skew detection and correction of a scanned document is a preprocessing step for optical character recognition systems. We present a novel approach in skew detection and correction of a typed document by minimizing the area of the axis-parallel bounding box. Advantage of our approach over existing methods is that our algorithm is script and content… CONTINUE READING
