We present a technique for extracting structural features from cursive Arabic script. After preprocessing, the skeleton of the binary word image is decomposed into a number of segments in a certain order. Each segment is transformed into a feature vector. The target features are the curvature of the segment, its length relative to other segment lengths of the same word, the position of the segment relative to the centroid of the skeleton, and detailed description of curved segments. The result… CONTINUE READING
