Hello folks,

I am working on a handwriting recognition android application project. I should recognize characters by online recognition.(I mean there are no words or images). I searched lots of websites about it. I learned that I would use neural network and I also learned how I can use neural network. But, I am confused about how I can set neural network by using inputs from user. Should I use points of characters or turn the characters into image? And then how can I create neural network by just using this inputs?

At this stage, "I am working on a handwriting recognition android application project" sounds like a slight exaggeration. :-)

You are asking your questions on a right site. Most of the information on OCR, in particular, using the approaches based on neural network, I found in CodeProject articles. Please see:

Neural Network OCR[^],
Creating Optical Character Recognition (OCR) applications using Neural Networks[^],
Neural Network Classifier[^],
A C# Project in Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Using Chain Code[^],
Unicode Optical Character Recognition[^],
Hebb neural network[^],
Backpropagation Artificial Neural Network in C++[^].

Sorry, none of then are in Java, but such tiny a difficulty cannot be a problem for you, can it?

Ok. Thanks. I continue searching on it, I hope I can handle it in 4 days. :) It will be a good project which you can connect your smart tv with your mobile phone and do every possible task with just writing on your mobile's screen or use gestures. If I can do it, I will explain it for java here. Thanks again.
