In our proposed work we will accept the challenges of recognizing the words and we will work to win the challenge. The handwritten document is scanned using a scanner. The image of the scanned document is processed victimization the program. Each character in the word is isolated. Then the individual isolated character is subjected to “Feature Extraction” by the Gabor Feature. Extracted features are passed through KNN classifier. Finally we get the Recognized word. Character recognition is a process by which computer recognizes handwritten characters and turns them into a format which a user can understand. Computer primarily based pattern recognition may be a method that involves many sub process. In today’s surroundings character recognition has gained ton of concentration with in the field of pattern recognition. Handwritten character recognition is beneficial in cheque process in banks, form processing systems and many more. Character recognition is one in all the favored and difficult space in analysis. In future, character recognition creates paperless environment. The novelty of this approach is to achieve better accuracy, reduced computational time for recognition of handwritten characters. The proposed method extracts the geometric features of the character contour. These features are based on the basic line types that forms the character skeleton. The system offers a feature vector as its output. The feature vectors so generated from a training set, were then used to train a pattern recognition engine based on Neural Networks so that the system can be benchmarked. The algorithm proposed concentrates on the same. It extracts totally different line varieties that forms a specific character. It conjointly also concentrates on the point options of constant. The feature extraction technique explained was tested using a Neural Network which was trained with the feature vectors obtained from the proposed method.
