Character Segmentation of handwritten words is a difficult task because of different writing styles and
complex structural features. Segmentation of handwritten text in Devanagari script is an uphill task. The
occurrence of header line, overlapped characters in middle zone & half characters make the segmentation
process more difficultt. Sometimes, interline space and noise makes line fragmentation a difficult task.
Sometimes, interline space and noise makes line fragmentation a difficult task. Without separating the
touching characters, it will be difficult to identify the characters, hence fragmentation is necessary of the
touching characters in a word. So, we devised a technique, according to that first step will be
preprocessing of a word, than identify the joint points, form the bounding boxes around all vertical &
horizontal lines and finally fragment the touching characters on the basis of their height and width.
