A reasonably large database of online handwritten Bangla characters has been developed. Such a handwritten character sample is composed of one or more strokes. Seventy five such stroke classes have been identified on the basis of the varying handwriting styles present in the character database. Each character sample is a sequence of strokes emanating from these stroke classes. Another database of handwritten Bangla strokes has been developed from the character database. This is the first such… CONTINUE READING
