This paper describes stochastic modeling of pencoordinate information in HMMs with structured character pattern representation (SCPR) for on-line recognition of handwritten Japanese characters. SCPR allows HMMs for Kanji character patterns to share common subpatterns. Although SCPR-based HMMs have been successfully applied to Kanji character recognition, the pen-coordinate feature has not been modeled since it is an unique feature for each character pattern. In this paper, we employ mapping… CONTINUE READING
