Forms often contain preprinted elements as field rakes (or combs) or character rakes (or combs). Scanned document in some cases, also have horizontal or vertical lines due to the banding or folding of papers. Dealing with those artifacts is a challenging task for a system that tries to detect rakes during processing business documents. RakeHelper searches for rakes the aim being the extraction and recognition of the characters. Also rakes can be used as features in the step of form identification and recognition as anchor elements. RakeHelper expects as input a monochrome image.
