Character Recognition

Published: 14 Aug 2011

I've written a simple Character Recognition algorithm which seems to work reasonably well (for my handwriting at least!). To try it out, draw a single capital letter in the box below using your mouse and click 'Process'. The algorithm should be able to cope with variations in size and orientation.

Results are displayed in order of 'best fit', with the algorithm's best guess shown first.
