Abstract

Text line extraction is one of the critical steps in document analysis and optical character recognition (OCR) systems. The purpose of this study is to address the problem of text line extraction of ancient Thai manuscripts written on palm leaves, using an Adaptive Partial Projection (APP) technique by integrating a modified partial projection and smooth histogram with recursion. The proposed approach was compared with a Modified Partial Projection (MPP) looking at vowel analysis and touching components of two consecutive lines. The results from this research suggested that the proposed approach for practical data on palm leaf manuscripts has better performance in solving the line segmentation problem.
