Abstract

In Kannada document image analysis, the document segmentation into individual lines, words and characters poses many challenges. The aksharas of Kannada language are formed by combination of glyphs of consonant, consonant conjuncts and vowel modifiers; therefore a lot variation in widths and heights of aksharas can be observed. Moreover an akshara is composed of two or more disconnected components. The consonant conjuncts pose more problems as they occasionally overlap with next line or next character. In this research we have proposed a Kannada document segmentation method using zone based projection profiles. The experiments are conducted on several scanned Kannada document with different fonts and character segmentation rate of 99.2% and consonant conjunct segmentation rate of 92.73% on an average is observed.
