Abstract

Preprocessing of document image is a very important step to handle the deformations namely noise, different handwriting complexities that may result in base line skew, word skew, character skew, accents may be cited either above or below the text line and parts of neighboring text lines may be connected, etc. The paper presents a novel preprocessing technique for handwritten document to handle some of the deformations usually present in the document like touching components, overlapping components, skewed lines, words with individual skews etc. and build a proper text image with all these deformations removed.
