The authors present a neural predictive system for on-line writer-independent character recognition. The data collection of each letter contains the pen trajectory information recorded by a digitizing tablet. Each letter is modeled by a fixed number of predictive neural networks (NN), so that a different multilayer NN models successive parts of a letter. The topology of each letter-model only permits transitions from each NN to itself or to its neighbors. In order to deal with the great variability proper to cursive handwriting in the omni-scriptor framework, they implement a holistic approach during both learning and recognition by performing adaptive segmentation. Also, the recognition step implements interactive recognition and segmentation. The approach compares neural techniques combined with dynamic programming to its extension to the hidden Markov model (HMM) framework. The first system gives quite good recognition rates on letter databases obtained from 10 different writers, and results improve considerably when one considers the extension of the first system to the durational HMM framework
