Abstract: Hidden Markov models (HMMs) are widely used in off-line handwriting recognition to model the probability (density) of an observation sequence, given its corresponding text transcription. Observation sequences typically consist of fixed-dimension feature vectors which are computed locally, using a sliding window along the handwritten text image. However, there is no standard set of local features being used by most of the systems proposed. In this paper we explore the possibility of raw, binary pixels instead of “complicated” features. To this purpose, we propose the use of Bernoulli HMMs, that is, HMMs in which the state-conditional probability (density) function is not a conventional Gaussian (mixture) density, but a multivariate Bernoulli (mixture) probability function. Promising empirical results are reported on two tasks of handwriting word recognition.
