Handwritten Character Recognition (HCR), Recognize Handwritten Gujarati Digits


Handwritten Character Recognition (HCR) is one of the applications of pattern recognition which can be online or offline. HCR systems convert handwriting into letter codes. Because of its large differences in writing style, context-independency and high recognition accuracy requirement, handwritten digits identification is still a very difficult problem. Analyzing the characteristic of handwritten digits, this paper proposes a new handwritten digit identification method based on combining structural features. Given a handwritten digit, a variety of structural features of the digit including bounded region, number and position of end points are identified using structural identification algorithms. Recognition of digits is done using decision tree.
