Character Segmentation Of Degraded Odia Script
Keywords:ocr, Pre-processing, segmentation
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a field which converts printed text into computer understandable format that is editable in nature. Odia is a regional language used in Odisha, West Bengal & Jharkhand. It is used by over forty million people and still counting. With such large dependency on a language makes it important, to preserve its script, get a digital editable version of odia script. We propose a framework that takes computer printed odia script image as an input & gives a computer readable & user editable format of same, which eventually recognizes the characters printed in input image. The system uses various techniques to improve the image & perform Line segmentation followed by word segmentation & finally character segmentation using horizontal & vertical projection profile.
