Unconstrained Online Handwriting Recognition with Recurrent Neural Networks

  title={Unconstrained Online Handwriting Recognition with Recurrent Neural Networks},
  author={Alex Graves and Sara Fern{\'a}ndez and Marcus Liwicki and Horst Bunke},
In online handwriting recognition the trajectory of the pen is recorded during writing. Although the trajectory provides a compact and complete representation of the written output, it is hard to transcribe directly, because each letter is spread over many pen locations. Most recognition systems therefore employ sophisticated preprocessing techniques to put the inputs into a more localised form. However these techniques require considerable human effort, and are specific to particular languages… CONTINUE READING
