Document analysis is relying on pre-processing stage. As much as we get optimal results in pre-processing, better will be the chances of analyzing the contents of a document. Similarly, for scanned text documents, a skew detection and then correction is very important, because, it significantly improves the accuracies in Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems. This paper presents a novel approach for skew detection and correction. The approach is specifically tested on Latin and Arabic like scripts and outperform state of the art approaches.
