03/30/2010 ∙ by Sandip Rakshit, et al. ∙ 0

In the present work, we have used Tesseract 2.01 open source Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Engine under Apache License 2.0 for recognition of handwriting samples of lower case Roman script. Handwritten isolated and free-flow text samples were collected from multiple users. Tesseract is trained to recognize user-specific handwriting samples of both the categories of document pages. On a single user model, the system is trained with 1844 isolated handwritten characters and the performance is tested on 1133 characters, taken form the test set. The overall character-level accuracy of the system is observed as 83.5 and erroneously classifies 10.94
