Abstract:- This paper presents a technique for improving the recognition accuracy of Hindi OCR System by developing concept for detection of Bold, Italic and underline words. Optical Character Recognition is a process by which characters in text of printed document or scanned page are recognized and converted to ASCII character that a computer can read and edit.Detection of font style in Hindi script document can improve the performance of Hindi OCR system.
