ABSTRACT
<p><b>Abstract</b>—This paper presents a precise system for handwritten Chinese and Japanese character recognition. Before extracting <it>directional element feature</it> (DEF) from each character image, <it>transformation based on partial inclination detection</it> (TPID) is used to reduce undesired effects of degraded images. In the recognition process, <it>city block distance with deviation</it> (CBDD) and <it>asymmetric Mahalanobis distance</it> (AMD) are proposed for rough classification and fine classification. With this recognition system, the experimental result of the database ETL9B reaches to 99.42%.</p>
