  • Patent number: 9026428
    Abstract: A system and method for receiving character input from a user includes a programmed processor that receives inputs from the user and disambiguates the inputs to present character sequence choices corresponding to the input characters. In one embodiment, a first character input is received and a corresponding first recognized character is stored in a temporary storage buffer and displayed to the user for editing. After a predetermined number of subsequent input characters and/or predetermined amount of time without being edited, the system determines that the first recognized character is the intended character input by the user and removes the first recognized character from the buffer, thereby inhibiting future editing.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8180160
    Abstract: The present invention generally describes a method for classifying a line segment of a handwritten line into a reference feature set, wherein said handwritten line comprises one or several curves representing a plurality of symbols. First, sample data representing said handwritten line is received. Next, a sample line segment in said received sample data is identified by detecting a sample line segment start point (SLSSP) and a sample line segment end point (SLSEP). Then, a sample feature set of said identified sample line segment is determined. Finally, the determined sample feature set is matched to a reference feature set among a plurality of reference feature sets.

  • Patent number: 7865016
    Abstract: A method for recognition of a handwritten pattern comprising one or more curves is presented. The method comprises a step of receiving sample data representing the handwritten pattern. The method further comprises a step of segmenting the handwritten pattern by detecting segmentation points on each curve, and by dividing the handwritten pattern into segments. Further, the method comprises a step of comparing the handwritten pattern to templates wherein the comparing comprises a step of normalizing said segments according to a scheme which is independent of the templates to which the segments are to be compared, and a step of determining matching measures for selecting at least one sequence of templates representing a recognintion candidate of the handwritten pattern.

  • Patent number: 7756335
    Abstract: A method for determining at least one recognition candidate for a handwritten pattern comprises selecting possible segmentation points in the handwritten pattern for use in segmenting and recognizing the handwritten pattern. The method further may comprise comparing segments of the handwritten pattern to templates. The comparison may return segment candidates forming possible recognition results of the segments of the handwritten pattern. The method further comprises forming a representation of sequences of segment candidates, said representation comprising data blocks corresponding to segmentation points, wherein a data block comprises references to data blocks corresponding to subsequent segmentation points. The reference may comprise information of segment candidates.

  • Patent number: 7596272
    Abstract: A method for recognition of a handwritten pattern comprises selecting core points among a sequence of detected points of the handwritten pattern. The core points are selected for use in segmenting and recognizing the handwritten pattern. The method may further comprise identifying potential diacritics in the sequence of points of the handwritten pattern, determining features of each core point, assigning at least one feature associated with identified potential diacritics to each core point of a subset of core points, and comparing the handwritten pattern to templates.

  • Patent number: 7580573
    Abstract: A method for recognition of a handwritten pattern comprises selecting core points among a sequence of detected points of the handwritten pattern. The core points are selected for use in segmenting and recognizing the handwritten pattern. The method further comprises determining features of each core point, and comparing the handwritten pattern to templates. The comparing comprises stepwise analyzing the core points in sequence by matching the features of sequences of core points that either start with the first core point or the last core point of a previous sequence to said templates and calculating a distance value, and assigning a cumulative distance value to the last core point in the matched sequence of core points, whereby a smallest cumulative distance value is assigned to the last core point and corresponds to a sequence of matched templates which represent a possible recognition result of the handwritten pattern.
