Paper Abstract

We present the IRAC II (Interactive Recognition of Arabic Characters) and the IRAC III systems, which recognize isolated Arabic words written from right to left on a graphic tablet connected to a mini-computer (MITRA 15125). In the IRAC II version words are recognized following their segmentation into characters. The IRAC III version uses global recognition with no segmentation. It calculates a vector defining the main parameters for each stroke making up the word and uses this information to recognize the word by dictionary consultation. It resolves eventual ambiguities with the help of secondary parameters calculated for each stroke.
