Segmentation-free word recognition with application to Arabic

  title={Segmentation-free word recognition with application to Arabic},
  author={Badr Al-Badr and Robert M. Haralick},
This paper describes the design and implementation of a system that recognizes machine-printed Arabic words without prior segmentation. The technique is based on describing symbols in terms of shape primitives. At recognition time, the primitives are detected on a word image using mathematical m.orphology operations. The system then matches the detected primitives with symbol models. This leads to a spatial arrangement of m.atched symbol models. The system conducts a search in the space of… CONTINUE READING
