— Regular expressions are extremely useful, because they allow us to work with text in terms of patterns. They are considered the most sophisticated means of performing operations such as string searching, manipulation, validation, and formatting in all applications that deal with text data. Character recognition problem scenarios in sequence analysis that(More)
Classification methods based on learning from examples have been widely applied to character recognition from the 1990s and have brought forth significant improvements of recognition accuracies. This class of methods includes statistical methods, artificial neural networks, support vector machines (SVM), multiple classifier combination, etc. In this paper,(More)
The paper presents a two stage classification approach for handwritten devanagari characters The first stage is using structural properties like shirorekha, spine in character and second stage exploits some intersection features of characters which are fed to a feedforward neural network. Simple histogram based method does not work for finding shirorekha,(More)
A novel, generic scheme for off-line handwritten English alphabets character images is proposed. The advantage of the technique is that it can be applied in a generic manner to different applications and is expected to perform better in uncertain and noisy environments. The recognition scheme is using a multilayer perceptron(MLP) neural networks. The system(More)
