<p>The recognition of Korean characters by a syntactic method is considered. Korean characters are composed of phonetic symbols in two dimensions and contain very little redundancy. In addition, the phonetic symbols in each character are different in shape and number depending on how they are composed. Thus, attribute information is important. A Korean character recognition algorithm based on an attribute-dependent programmed grammar is presented. The preprocessing and primitive extraction algorithm is also described. The algorithm was implemented and tested with more than 9600 Korean characters in pages randomly selected from children's story books. The algorithm based on the attribute-dependent programmed grammar recognized characters reasonably quickly, with more than 95.1% accuracy.</p>
