Structural Features Extraction for Handwritten Arabic Personal Names Recognition

Abstract

Due to the nature of handwriting with high degree of variability and imprecision, obtaining features that represent words is a difficult task. In this research, a features extraction method for handwritten Arabic word recognition is investigated. Its major goal is to maximize the recognition rate with the least amount of elements. This method incorporates many characteristics of handwritten characters based on structural information (loops, stems, legs, diacritics). Experiments are performed on Arabic personal names extracted from registers of the national Tunisian archive and on some Tunisian city names of IFN-ENIT database. The obtained results presented are encouraging and open other perspectives in the domain of the features and classifiers selection of Arabic Handwritten word recognition.
