I'm using Opencv Python 3.30. I'm having a problem with separating the connected letters of a word. Here's an example: image description

As you've noticed the letters, T and O are connected to each other. I have tried using two iterations of erosion and one iteration of dilation but they're still connected. Do you have any tips how to approach this problem?

Thanks in advance.

The characters used in that example are separated. In my case, two neighboring characters are connected which makes it difficult to localize each character for recognition.
