This paper describes an experimental system for the on-line recognition of handwritten Chinese characters. Constituent shapes of the characters are recognized as they are formed on an electronic tablet. The 72 constituent shapes can define a very large set of Chinese characters. The implementation described recognizes more than 2200 Chinese characters. More symbols can be added with relative ease. Experimental results are given for two writer populations.
