Paper Abstract

Traditional methods for character segmentation are suitable only for some special cases, such as text with fixed pitches and sizes or text with overlapped, inclined or touched characters. We suggest a method which combines the advantages of both region-based and recognition-based methods to process texts which are composed of mixed English and Chinese characters. The method could distinguish different kinds of characters and would know whether they are overlapped, inclined, touched or not.
