Cursive Script Recognition using Wildcards and Multiple Experts

  title={Cursive Script Recognition using Wildcards and Multiple Experts},
  author={Arto Kaarna and Jussi Parkkinen},
  journal={Pattern Analysis & Applications},
Variability in handwriting styles suggests that many letter recognition engines cannot correctly identify some handwritten letters of poor quality at reasonable computational cost. Methods that are capable of searching the resulting sparse graph of letter candidates are therefore required. The method presented here employs ‘wildcards’ to represent missing letter candidates. Multiple experts are used to represent different aspects of handwriting. Each expert evaluates closeness of match and… CONTINUE READING
