AbstractA Pre-processing is the initial and vital phase in optical character recognition is the Pre-processing. Segmentation deals with the extraction of individual component from a document image. Number of techniques like projection profile, connected components, gaps between characters/components is reported in the literature for component extraction followed by feature extraction and recognition of the individual component. These techniques gives good results if components are isolated but fails if components are touched, shadowed or skewed. A novel technique is required to address such issues to enhance the recognition rate. The problem of segmentation for Roman script cursive handwriting is addressed by various authors but not enough addressed for Indian script especially Devanagari script. This paper is a review which is confined to offline handwritten script domain. It attempt to review various techniques for character segmentation considering touching characters for offline handwritten words in Devanagari script and scripts sharing similar characteristics (like Bangla, Gurumukhi), database used and their accuracy reported in the literature.
