Machine Recognition of Online Handwritten Devanagari Characters

Abstract: In this paper, we describe a system for the automatic recognition of isolated handwritten Devanagari characters obtained by linearizing consonant conjuncts. Owing to the large number of characters and resulting demands on data acquisition, we use structural recognition techniques to reduce some characters to others. The residual characters are then classified using the subspace method. Finally the results of structural recognition and feature-based matching are mapped to give final output. The proposed system is evaluated for the writer dependent scenario. Publication Info: ICDAR 2005 International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition, 29th Aug-1st Sept 2005, Seoul, Korea
