Recognition of unconstrained handwritten text is still a challenge. In this paper we consider a new problem, which is the recognition of notes written on a whiteboard. Our recognizer is based on hidden Markov models (HMMs). As it is difficult to acquire sufficient amounts of training data for the HMMs we propose two strategies for enlarging the training set… CONTINUE READING
