The present disclosure relates to a system and a method for detection of touching characters in a media , characterized by segmentation of adjoining character spaces . In the very first step , an aspect ratio is calculated for each connected com ponent . A candidate touching position of each character is determined by calculating a threshold aspect ratio for each character . Further , a candidate cut column is determined based on a relation between column pixel densities and corresponding length thereof the column in order to segment the touching characters at the candidate cut column .
