Description In this paper we study the detection of skewed text lines in scanned document images. The aim of our work is to develop a new automatic approach able to estimate precisely the skew angle of text in document images. Our new method is based on Maximum Gradient Difference (MGD) and R-signature. It detects zones that have high variations of gray values in different directions using the MGD transform. We consider these zones as being text regions. R-signature which is a shape descriptor based on Radon transform is then applied in order to approximate the skew angle. The accuracy of the proposed algorithm is evaluated on an open dataset by comparing error rates.
