Abstract

Character recognition (CR) has been extensively studied in the last half century and progressed to a level sufficient to produce technology driven applications. Now, the rapidly growing computational power enables the implementation of the present CR methodologies and creates an increasing demand on many emerging application domains, which require more advanced methodologies.
