A segmentation and recognition method for handwritten phrases, such as street names, is presented in this paper. Some of the challenges posed by the problem are: (1) identifying correct word gaps from character gaps and (2) minimization of computational complexity during the recognition of potential words. A trainable word segmentation scheme using a neural network is introduced. The network learns the type of spacing (including size) that one should expect between different pairs of characters in handwritten text. The concept of variable duration, which is obtained during the training phase of a word recognition engine we have developed, is expanded to reduce the computational complexity which has been a serious concern in this type of application
