Integrating Language Model in Handwritten Chinese Text Recognition
This paper describes a system for handwritten Chinese text recognition integrating language model. On a text line image, the system generates character segmentation and word segmentation candidates, and the candidate paths are evaluated by character recognition scores and language model. The optimal path, giving segmentation and recognition result, is found using a pruned dynamic programming search method. We evaluate various language models, including the character-based n-gram, word-based ngram, and hybrid n-gram models. Experimental results on the HIT-HW database show that the language models improve the recognition performance remarkably.
