Abstract : In this paper, we propose an approach for the separation of overlapping and touching lines within handwritten Arabic documents. Our approach is based on the morphology analysis of the terminal letters of Arabic words. Starting from 4 categories of possible endings, we use the angular variance to follow the connection and separate the endings. The proposed separation scheme has been evaluated on 100 documents contains 640 overlapping and touching occurrences reaching an accuracy of about 96.88%.
