Mongolian many historical and cultural documents are stored as books, whch are written in traditional mongolian script. Therefore, traditional script recognition is one of the important topics in Mongolia. In this paper, we have summarize results of segmentation of the traditional mongolian script. There are 3 methods are discussed; (1) handwritten or italic script segmentation by computing the slop, (2) segmentation by backbone width, and (3) segmentation by removing backbone. Specially, in the ‘modon bar’ format which is printing style without any separated parts called “dusal”. In experiments, we use “Ganjuur Danjuur sudar” cultural valuable book with 102 pages. In this time, we test 3 pages, 84 columns, 703 words, 2500 scripts. As a results, we achieved the column segmentation rate 100%, the word segmentation rate 98% and script segmentation rate 85%.
