The binarisation plays an important role in a system for text extraction from images which is a prominent area in digital image processing. The primary goal of the binarisation techniques are to covert colored and gray scale image into black and white image so that overall computational overhead can be minimized. It has great impact on performance of the system for text extraction from image. Such system has number of applications like navigation system for visually impaired persons, automatic text extraction from document images, and number plate detection to enforcement traffic rules etc. The present study analysed the performance of well known binarisation algorithms on degraded documents and camera captured images. The statistical parameters namely Precession, Recall and F-measure and PSNR are used to evaluate the performance. To find the suitability of the binarisation method for text preservation in natural scene images, we have also considered visual observation
