Abstract : In this paper we propose a new method for document pages segmentation. First dedicated to handwritten documents, our method is designed to extract the different text zones, paragraph and fragment in unconstraint documents. The proposed approach is a mixed one, using both the advantages of top-down and bottom-up approaches. In this paper we proposed and evaluation of our methods on a 183 documents database, taken from a 19th century handwritten corpus : the "dossiers de Bouvard et Pécuchet" from Flaubert. With this evaluation we demonstrate that the combination of the top-down and the bottom-up approach allow to improve the obtained results.
