Abstract: A system for recognition of online handwritten telugu characters has been presented for Indian writing systems. A handwritten character is represented as a sequence of strokes whose features are extracted and classified. Support vector machines have been used for constructing the stroke recognition engine. The results have been presented after testing the system on Telugu scripts.
