We report an algorithm to identify the script of each word in a document image. We start with a bi-script scenario which is later extended to tri-script and then to eleven-script scenarios. A database of 20,000 words of different font styles and sizes has been collected and used for each script. Effectiveness of Gabor and discrete cosine transform (DCT) features has been independently evaluated using nearest neighbor, linear discriminant and support vector machines (SVM) classifiers. The combination of Gabor features with nearest neighbor or SVM classifier shows promising results; i.e., over 98% for bi-script and tri-script cases and above 89% for the eleven-script scenario.
