Abstract-- A new approach for Arabic handwriting recognition
is proposed. The proposed method is part of a larger software
framework to teach Arabic reading and writing to illiterates. The
method is customized to each letter of the Arabic alphabet. The
characteristics of each letter are analyzed and the appropriate
detection scheme for that letter is then determined. This allows
the method to provide feedback to the user on the correctness of
the character written. Furthermore, in case of incorrect writing,
the method indicates what part of the letter was erroneously
written. This feedback feature allows the user to enhance his
handwriting the next time he writes the same letter. The target is
to combat adult illiteracy in the Arab world by using Information
Technology.
Index Terms-- Adult illiteracy, Arabic language, Image
processing, Offline handwriting recognition.
