A two-stage approach for word-wise identification of English (Roman), Devnagari and Bengali (Bangla) scripts is proposed. This approach balances the tradeoff between recognition accuracy and processing speed. The 1st stage allows identifying scripts with high speed, yet less accuracy when dealing with noisy data. The advanced 2nd stage processes only those samples that yield low recognition confidence in the first stage. For both stages a rough character segmentation is performed and features… CONTINUE READING
