Paper Abstract

A method is proposed for recognition of uchen script Tibetan historical document using baseline information. The baseline is a significant feature of uchen script Tibetan characters, and the result of Tibetan document recognition can be improved effectively by using baseline information. Firstly, the baseline is detected accurately by the upper edge of character strokes in the document. Secondly, the baseline is used for segmentation of text line and character, and the text line adhesion can be handled also. Finally, the character part above baseline and that below baseline are recognized individually, and the final results are synthesized. The experiment shows that the proposed method is effective for the recognition of Tibetan historical document, and the recognition accuracy is better than that of the whole character recognition.
