Abstract

This paper presents a morphological technique for text extraction from images. The proposed morphological technique is insensitive to noise, skew and text orientation. It is also free from artifacts that are usually introduced by both fixed/optimal global thresholding and fixed-size block-based local thresholding. Examples are presented to illustrate the performance of the proposed method.
