Abstract:

This report discusses a research effort whose object is the design of a handprint alpha-numeric reader capable of human recognition rates. The effort included Collection of a large data base of unconstrained handprinted alpha-numeric characters Editing the data to re- label mislabeled characters, remove noise, and delete totally illegible characters. A separate programming package the Data Base Editing Package was designed and implemented for this purpose The design of new features to improve the performance of the system The design of the recognition logic using an OLPARS-like program, the Alpha-Numeric Logic Package ANLP, which used the expanded feature set An independent test of the logic using a set of 6127 characters not included in the design set and, Analysis of the results of the independent test to develop reject strategies to reduce substitution errors.
