This paper describes a series of experiments that have been conducted to investigate the effect of duration modeling in a hidden Markov model (HMM) based online handwriting recognition system. The issues discussed include parametric vs. non-parametric distributions to model duration, different methods for training transition probabilities and the effect of weighting on duration terms.
