Such a system need not provide a perfect rendition of the speech, all that is necessary is for the output to be readable and to be provided at or close to verbatim speeds. One possible system to achieve this would be to translate handwritten shorthand into readable orthography. This paper describes a feasibility study in which such a transcription system was implemented on… CONTINUE READING
