<p><b>Abstract</b>—Off-line recognition of handwriting may be achieved using simplified <it>profiles</it> of word shapes. These profiles consist of approximations of the word's upper and lower contour. Training and recognition are based on n-gram extraction and identification. The lexicons used extend to 16,000 words.</p>
Handwriting, off-line, global recognition of word shape, contour, n-gram, large-size lexicon.
