See if this does what you want: http://www.mathworks.com/help/vision/ref/ocr.html#bt548t1-2_1. Otherwise, if your lines are aligned with the edges of the image, get the mean horizontally:
verticalProfile = mean(grayImage, 2);
Then threshold
inALineIndexes = verticalProfile < 128; % or whatever value works.
