Handwriting recognition is one of area pattern recognition. The purpose of pattern recognition is to categorizing or classification data or object of one of the classes or categories. Handwriting recognition is defined (Plamondon. et. al 2000) as the task of transforming a language represented in its spatial form of graphical marks into its symbolic representation. Each script has a set of icons, which are known as characters or letters, which have certain basic shapes (Plamondon. et. al 2000). The goal of handwriting is to identify input characters or image correctly then analyzed to many automated process system. The development of handwriting is more sophisticated, which is found various kinds of handwritten character such as digit, numeral, cursive script, symbols, and scripts including English, Tamil, Bangla, Arabic, Chinese, Latin and others. The automatic recognition of handwritten text can be extremely useful in many applications where it is necessary to process large volumes of handwritten data, such as recognition of addresses and postcodes on envelopes, interpretation of amounts on bank checks, document analysis, and verification of signatures (Impedovo 1994). Therefore, computer is needed to be able to read document or data for ease of document processing.
