Fusion of Complementary Online and Offline Strategies for Recognition of Handwritten Kannada Characters

  title={Fusion of Complementary Online and Offline Strategies for Recognition of Handwritten Kannada Characters},
  author={Rakesh Rampalli and A. G. Ramakrishnan},
  journal={J. UCS},
This work describes an online handwritten character recognition system working in combination with an offline recognition system. The online input data is also converted into an offline image, and parallely recognized by both online and offline strategies. Features are proposed for offline recognition and a disambiguation step is employed in the offline system for the samples for which the confidence level of the classifier is low. The outputs are then combined probabilistically resulting in a… CONTINUE READING
