In this paper we investigate the integration of a confusion network into an on-line handwritten sentence recognition system. The word posterior probabilities from the confusion network are used as confidence scored to detect potential errors in the output sentence from the Maximum A Posteriori decoding on a word graph. Dedicated classifiers (here, SVMs) are then trained to correct these errors and combine the word posterior probabilities with other sources of knowledge. A rejection phase is also introduced in the detection process. Experiments on handwritten sentences show a 28.5 % relative reduction of the word error rate.
