Abstract?An unconventional approach to character recognition is developed. The resulting system is based solely on the statistical properties of the language, therefore it can read printed text with no previous training or a priori information about the structure of the characters. The known letter-pair frequencies of the language are used to identify the printed symbols in the following manner.
Index Terms?Adaptive, character recognition, clustering, cryptograms, linear categorizer, pattern classification, reading machine.
