A Methodology for Mapping Scores to Probabilities
September 1999 (vol. 21 no. 9)
pp. 923-927

Abstract—This paper describes the derivation of probability of correctness from scores assigned by most recognizers. Derivation of probability values puts the output of different recognizers on the same scale; this makes comparison across recognizers trivial.
