Humans can read texts independently of the style they are written. Writing style do not help to identify what is writ ten. For this reason, it is a good idea to make the system invariant to the style. One of the major sources of variabil ity that characterizes the writing style is the slant angle. In this work, a formalization of projection profile meth ods, is made. New experimental results are obtained using, and consolidating slant correction methods from a previous work on the subject, under this paradigm. Moreover, new projection profile slant correction extensions are proposed and tested.
