Research output: Patent


Method for online character recognition of Arabic text, the method including receiving handwritten Arabic text from a user in the form of handwriting strokes, sampling the handwriting strokes to acquire a sequence of two dimensional point representations thereof, with associated temporal data, geometrically pre processing and extracting features on the point representations, detecting delayed strokes and word parts in the pre processed point representations, projecting the delayed strokes onto the body of the word parts, constructing feature vector representations for each word part, thereby generating an observation sequence, and determining the word with maximum probability given the observation sequence, resulting in a list of word probabilities.
