This paper describes a method for using sequential positional information to recognize handprinted Chinese characters, and a computer program which uses this method to provide a translation aid. The method is based on the fact that Chinese characters are drawn as a definite sequence of a few types of strokes. The program, which provides a direct man-computer communication via a RAND Tablet and a CRT display, simplifies using a Chinese dictionary by reducing the number of steps and the time required.
