Abstract: Handwritten character recognition is an area of pattern recognition which defines an ability of a machine to analyze a pattern and identify the character. Pattern recognition is the science of making inferencas from perpatule data based on either priore knowledge or on statistical information. This paper focouses on development of software algorithm to recognize any hand written character efficiently on computer with input is either an old optical image or currently provided through touch input, mouse or pen.
