Online Handwriting Recognition for Indic Scripts

A., Bharath; Madhvanath, Sriganesh

External - Copyright Consideration

Keyword(s): Online handwriting recognition, indic script recognition

Abstract: Handwriting recognition refers to the problem of machine recognition of handwritten script. Over the years, a number of algorithms have been proposed and today there are even commercial systems for European and Oriental scripts. Even though handwriting-based text input methods have tremendous potential in the context of Indic scripts, research efforts directed at recognition are at their early stages. The structure of the scripts and a variety of writing styles pose challenges that are different from other scripts and hence require customized techniques for recognition. In this paper, we describe the challenges in recognizing Indic scripts and present an overview of the state of the art approaches developed for isolated character recognition and word recognition. We also provide some pointers to resources such as tools and datasets that are available for online Indic script recognition.
