Arabic character recognition based on MCR
In this paper we propose an off-line recognition system for machine printed Arabic characters based on the Minimum Covering Run expression method (MCR). The recognition is achieved by matching to reference prototypes. We report a recognition rate of 97.5% and possibility of generalising the system to other symbols and characters.
