We propose a novel algorithm for automatic text line extraction on color and grayscale manuscript pages without prior binarization. Our algorithm is based on seam carving to compute separating seams between text lines. Seam carving is likely to produce seams that move through gaps between neighboring lines, if no information about the text geometry is incorporated into the problem. By constraining the optimization procedure inside the region between two consecutive text lines, we can producedoi:10.1109/icfhr.2014.127 dblp:conf/icfhr/ArvanitopoulosS14 fatcat:6u34hifinvhzng5cnmljz3uveu
