Variation in handwrit ing among different writers occurs since each writer possesses own speed of writing, different styles, sizes or positions for characters or text. Variation in handwriting styles also exists within individual person’s handwriting. This variation may take pl ace due to: writing in various situations that may or may not be comfortable to writer; different moods of writer; style of writing same characters with different shapes in different situations or as a part of different words; using different kinds of hard ware for handwriting. This paper provides a survey, and classification of various character recognition techniques.
