Experiments in the Contextual Recognition of Cursive Script

  author={Roger W. Ehrich and Kenneth J. Koehler},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Computers},
In this paper a structure for a contextual cursive script recognition system is presented. This system makes use of letter context to determine word length, letter segmentation, and character identity to achieve contextual recognition at the word level. The system consists of a character recognizer that presents a set of best alternatives for each character to a contextual postprocessor whose task it is to determine the correct word.
