Abstract: This paper presents a document skew and orientation detection technique. The proposed technique estimates document skew and orientation based on the observation that text images normally hold a large amount of equidistant interline spacings and the number of character ascenders is statistically much larger than that of character descenders. Given a document image with arbitrary skew and orientation, white run histograms are first constructed through scanning documents in horizontal and vertical directions. Document skew is then estimated by using the white runs that exactly span the interline spacing. Lastly, document orientation is determined according to the numbers of character ascenders and descenders, which are detected by using the white runs that cross the interline spacing and lie over character ascenders and descenders. Experiments show that the proposed technique is fast, accurate, and capable of detecting arbitrary document skew and orientation.
