Abstract

Our paper presents an online database for handwriting Arabic characters, so-called “CHAKEL-DB”: with “chakel” means diacritic in Arabic language. The database contains 3150 collected samples that present alpha-numeral characters with diacritical marks. The data are collected from more than 68 writers having different origins, genders and ages. The data are available in character and stroke levels. We built an elementary recognition system to test our database and to manipulate a large vocabulary and a huge quantity of variation style in the collected data. “CHAKEL-DB” is available for the purpose to improve handwriting research field, to facilitate experiments and researches. This database offers files in XML format.
