Recognition of handwritten characters - a review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the quest to study human perception, the field of character recognition remains prominent. Research has progressed from early, cumbersome optical character readers used for the recognition of a limited set of individual characters to the present-day automatic recognition of handwritten cursive script. This paper attempts to clarify the fundamentals of character recognition, highlighting the processes involved in using a standard database for 'learning' character sets and also the standards and constraints imposed by researchers concerning the constitution of a valid character. A number of various feature extraction techniques which enable individual characters to be recognized are discussed and compared. © 1986.
