AN APPROACH FOR SLANT CORRECTION USING PROJECTIVE TRANSFORMATION

Lalit Kumar, Abhay Bansal, Neeraj Jain

Abstract

Slant correction is a major challenge faced during handwritten text recognition process. Most of the traditional techniques try to estimate the global slant angle for the whole word, and rotate the word by this angle to remove the slant. On the other hand, certain other techniques estimate the slant angle at each abscissa using various techniques like DP technique. This paper presents an approach for correction of non-uniform slants in words using a hybrid of traditional global slant correction techniques and local slant approximation techniques. In this paper, we focus on correcting the slant of words that appear on check image under Legal Amount Region.
