This paper presents particularly a contextual post processing subsystem for a Turkish machine printed character recognition system. The contextual post processing subsystem is based on positional binary 3-gram statistics for Turkish language, an error corrector parser and a lexicon, which contains root words and the inflected forms of the root words. Error corrector parser is used for correcting CR alternatives using Turkish Morphology.
