A novel approach for recognition of handwritten compound Bangla characters, along with the Basic characters of Bangla alphabet, is presented here. Compared to English like Roman script, one of the major stumbling blocks in Optical Character Recognition (OCR) of handwritten Bangla script is the large number of complex shaped character classes of Bangla(More)
The work presented here involves the design of a Multi Layer Perceptron (MLP) based classifier for recognition of handwritten Bangla alphabet using a 76 element feature set Bangla is the second most popular script and language in the Indian subcontinent and the fifth most popular language in the world. The feature set developed for representing handwritten(More)
Handwritten numeral recognition is in general a benchmark problem of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence. Compared to the problem of printed numeral recognition, the problem of handwritten numeral recognition is compounded due to variations in shapes and sizes of handwritten characters. Considering all these, the problem of handwritten numeral(More)
In this paper, we have described the preparation of a benchmark database for research on off-line Optical Character Recognition (OCR) of document images of handwritten Bangla text and Bangla text mixed with English words. This is the first handwritten database in this area, as mentioned above, available as an open source document. As India is a(More)
Without publicly available dataset, specifically in handwritten document recognition (HDR), we cannot make a fair and/or reliable comparison between the methods. Considering HDR, Indic script’s document recognition is still in its early stage compared to others such as Roman and Arabic. In this paper, we present a page-level handwritten document image(More)
Handwritten document image dataset is one of the basic necessities to conduct research on developing Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems. In a multilingual country like India, handwritten documents often contain more than one script, leading to complex pattern analysis problems. In this paper, we highlight two such situations where Devanagari and(More)
