Abstract

A two-dimensional approach in processing mixed format documents having both picture and text information gives accurate results. However, the two-dimensional approach requires additional cost in multiline random access memory (RAM) storage. This article describes a technique whereby many of the advantages of the two-dimensional approach are included with only a minor increment in cost to a one-dimensional approach.
