Hi I have hand writing that need to segment to send it through OCR, problem is that it is connected letter, any easy way to seperate the connected letters apart so it can go trough OCR are one by one. THanks you for your help

Morphological operations like erosion and opening will separate blobs, but they might not separate them at the locations you want, so you're best off seeing how other people did it here:
particularly the section called "23.4.3 Character Segmentation, Segmentation of Individual Characters"
