This paper proposes an on-line handwritten Chinese character recognition system based on stroke-sequence feature extraction. The character to be recognized can be stroke-order and stroke-number free, tolerance for combined strokes, size flexible, but within the constraint of normal hand-writing. Firstly, the recognizer, using the finite state matching mechanism, is used to extract primitive strokes, represented as stroke string, from the input character. Secondly, the recognizer, using a modified dynamic programming matching method, is employed to perform recognition processes with the stroke-string features. Reference patterns have been generated 2500 Chinese characters with stroke-numbers ranging from 1 to 29. The recognition results are based upon the 1800 handwritten characters by 10 people. The obtained recognition rate is 94.5%, and the cumulative classification rate of choosing fourth most similar characters is up to 98.7%. In the last part, a secondary recognition mechanism is used to further tell apart the candidates involved. The final recognition rate may be promoted up to 99%.
