—A successful handwritten word recognition (HWR) system using Variable Duration Hidden Markov Model (VDHMM) and the PD-HMM strategy is easy to implement. The central theme of this paper is to show that if the duration statistics are computed, it could be utilized to implement an MD-HMM approach for better experimental results. This paper also describes a(More)
This paper describes a complete system for the recognition of unconstrained handwritten words using a continuous density variable duration hidden Markov model (CD-VDHMM). First, a new segmentation algorithm based on mathematical morphology is developed to translate the 2-D image into a 1-D sequence of subcharacter symbols. This sequence of symbols is(More)
