Abstract: Word spotting/matching in ancient printed documents is an extremely challenging task. The classical methods, like correlation, seem to fail when tested on ancient documents. So for that, we have formulated a multi-step document analysis mechanism which mainly revolves around finding the words and their characters in the text and attributing each character by some multi-dimensional features. Words are matched by comparing these multi-dimensional features of the characters using Dynamic Time warping (DTW). We have tested this approach on ancient document images provided by the Bibliothèque Interuniversitaire de Médecine, Paris. Our Initial experiments exhibit encouraging results having more than 90% precision and recall rates.
