text_line_slanttext_line_slantTextLineSlantTextLineSlantTextLineSlanttext_line_slant determines the slant of a single text line or a paragraph.

The parameter RegionRegionRegionRegionregionregion specifies the area of the image in which the text lines are located. The RegionRegionRegionRegionregionregion is only used to reduce the working area. To determine the slant, the gray values inside that area are used. The text lines are segmented by the operator text_line_slanttext_line_slantTextLineSlantTextLineSlantTextLineSlanttext_line_slant itself. If more than one region is passed, the numerical values of the orientation angle are stored in a tuple, the position of a value in the tuple corresponding to the position of the region in the input tuple.

CharHeightCharHeightCharHeightCharHeightcharHeightchar_height specifies the approximately high of the existing text lines in the region RegionRegionRegionRegionregionregion. It's assumed, that the text lines are darker than the background.

The search area can be restricted by the parameters SlantFromSlantFromSlantFromSlantFromslantFromslant_from and SlantToSlantToSlantToSlantToslantToslant_to, whereby also the runtime of the operator is influenced.

With the calculated slant angle SlantAngleSlantAngleSlantAngleSlantAngleslantAngleslant_angle and operators for affine transformations, the slant can be removed from the characters. This may simplify the character separation for OCR applications. To work correctly all characters of a region should have nearly the same slant.
