Abstract: 

Document page segmentation is a crucial preprocessing step in Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system. While numerous segmentation algorithms have been proposed, there is relatively less literature on comparative evaluation - empirical or theoretical - of these algorithms. We use a 5 step methodology to quantitatively compare the performance of page segmentation algorithms.
