Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system is used to convert the document images, either printed or handwritten, into its electronic counterpart. But dealing with handwritten texts is much more challenging than printed ones due to erratic writing style of the individuals. Problem becomes more severe when the input image is doctor's prescription. Before feeding such image to the OCR engine, the classification of printed and handwritten texts is a necessity as doctor's prescription contains both handwritten and printed texts which are to be processed separately.
