Abstract: Character segmentation is an important step of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system. The segmentation of touching symbols is one of the key factors which affect the performance of recognition system. Therefore, to make OCR systems more effective and accurate, segmentation of touching characters is an important task. This paper explains the concepts of touching characters and presents the survey of various approaches for touching character segmentation.
Keywords: Optical Character Recognition systems, Recognition rate, Segmentation, Touching Characters.
