In this paper, a new method is presented for the recognition of online forms filled manually by a digital-type clip. This writing process is not very restrictive but it is only sending electronic ink without the pre-printed form, which will require to undertake field recognition without context. To identify the form model of filled fields, we propose a method based on Bayesian networks. The networks use the conditional probabilities between fields in order to infer the real structure. We associate multiple Bayesian networks for different structures levels (i.e. sub-structures) and test different algorithms for form structure learning. The experiments were conducted on the basis of 3200 forms provided by the Actimage compagny, specialist in interactive writing processes. The first results show a recognition rate reaching more than 97%.
