In this paper, the model of repairing digital textual material is studied firstly. In order to accurately extract each single character from English textual material, a segmentation method based on projection and characters connectivity is presented. Experimental results show that this method is effective and practical, which can be used to extract each Chinese character because of its extendibility.

Key wordsMaterial repairment      Digital textual image      Characters segmentation      Digital library
