Effective Technique for the Recognition of Writer Independent Off-Line Handwritten Arabic Words

Abstract

In this paper we present a novel segmentation-free Arabic handwriting recognition system based on hidden Markov model (HMM). Two main contributions are introduced: a novel pre-processing method and a new technique for dividing the image into non uniform horizontal segments to extract the features. The proposed system first pre-processes the input image by… (More)
