A fuzzy technique for segmentation of handwritten Bangla word images is presented. It works in two steps. In first step, the black pixels constituting the Matra (i.e., the longest horizontal line joining the tops of individual characters of a Bangla word) in the target word image is identified by using a fuzzy feature. In second step, some of the black pixels on the Matra are identified as segment points (i.e., the points through which the word is to be segmented) by using three fuzzy features. On experimentation with a set of 210 samples of handwritten Bangla words, collected from different sources, the average success rate of the technique is shown to be 95.32%. Apart from certain limitations, the technique can be considered as a significant step towards the development of a full-fledged Bangla OCR system, especially for handwritten documents
