Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new threshold method based on morphological operations and the fourth central moment criterion is proposed in order to segment gray-scale images into bilevel images. The method consists of four steps processing. Experimental tests on text analysis under various non- uniform background illumination show very good performance for extracting words from the background.
