Abstract

This article relates to a method for determining the segmentation regio in the character string of proportionally spaced type fonts. The method steps comprise: (1) locating the left-hand character edge; (2) executing a predetermined number of vertical scans in the region of the character contiguous to the left-hand edge; (3) applying the scanned subarrays of information to a recognition logic; (4) ascertaining the class to which the character is a member from the scanned subarray information; and (5) determining the right-hand edge of the character based upon the characteristics of the class to which it belongs.
