Abstract

Electronic document management systems provide great benefits to society. Software tools such as word processors are used in generation, storage, and retrieval of documents in specific formats. Using such tools, documents can be edited, printed, or distributed electronically across networks. However, with paper documents, the previous tasks cannot be accomplished by computers, so there is a need to extract the information in documents to store them in a computerized format. Handwritten text recognition has significant potential.
