I'm trying to develop a project that recognises handwriting and converts into text. What are the algorithms and tools to be used?

  • I suggest you take a look at the work of Alex Graves - cs.toronto.edu/~graves/handwriting.html – Maxim Oct 12 '17 at 13:58
  • This feels a bit much like a "do my homework for me"question to me. Could you make this question a little more specific? – mindcrime Nov 9 '17 at 23:50
  • I need to know about handwriting recognition through image processing i.e recognising patterns of handwriting in the image. I need some suggestions. Whether it is feasible or not? – Anandh Kishan Nov 11 '17 at 11:10

What you described sounds to me like Optical Character Recognition(OCR).

If you want to implement your own, I would say read through how an open source OCR like Tesseract was implemented.

Otherwise just google for OCR and you will find a list of OCR engines, both comercial and open-source. To list but a few:

Most OCRs makes use of a combination of a segmantation and image classification(usually done with Convolutional Neural Networks).

See here for more information.

  • Thanks for the info :) . But I want to recognise using image processing. How can I do that? – Anandh Kishan Oct 12 '17 at 16:26
