Abstract
During the last few years many document recognition methods have been developed to determine whether a handwriting specimen can be attributed to a known writer. However, in practice, the work-flow of the document examiner continues to be manual-intensive. Before a systematic or computational, approach can be developed, an articulation of the steps involved in handwriting comparison is needed. We describe the work flow of handwritten questioned document examination, as described in a standards manual, and the steps where existing automation tools can be used. A well-known ransom note case is considered as an example, where one encounters testing for multiple writers of the same document, determining whether the writing is disguised, known writing is formal while questioned writing is informal, etc. The findings for the particular ransom note case using the tools are given. Also observations are made for developing a more fully automated approach to handwriting examination.
