Abstract

The recognition of Arabic characters is still a major challenge to overcome. In this paper, we propose a new approach in the field of recognition of multifont isolated Arabic characters. It is based on the semi-cursive nature of Arabic characters and consists in assimilating them to a small number of checkpoints equipped with their derivatives. The choice of this approach is motivated by the interesting properties of B´ezier curves that allow drawing parametric curves from a limited number of dots equipped with their tangents. The results achieved are very interesting and relate to character recognition derived from a large number of fonts (23 fonts).
