摘要Handwritten Chinese text recognition based on over-segmentation and path search integrating multiple contexts has been demonstrated successful, wherein the language model (LM) and character shape models play important roles. Although back-off N-gram LMs (BLMs) have been used dominantly for decades, they suffer from the data sparseness problem, especially for high-order LMs. Recently, neural network LMs (NNLMs) have been applied to handwriting recognition with superiority to BLMs. With the aim of improving Chinese handwriting recognition, this paper evaluates the effects of two types of character-level NNLMs, namely, feedforward neural network LMs (FNNLMs) and recurrent neural network LMs (RNNLMs). Both FNNLMs and RNNLMs are also combined with BLMs to construct hybrid LMs. For fair comparison with BLMs and a state-of-the-art system, we evaluate in a system with the same character over-segmentation and classification techniques as before, and compare various LMs using a small text corpus used before. Experimental results on the Chinese handwriting database CASIA-HWDB validate that NNLMs improve the recognition performance, and hybrid RNNLMs outperform the other LMs. To report a new benchmark, we also evaluate selected LMs on a large corpus, and replace the baseline character classifier, over-segmentation, and geometric context models with convolutional neural network (CNN) based models. The performance on both the CASIA-HWDB and the ICDAR-2013 competition dataset are improved significantly. On the CASIA-HWDB test set, the character-level accurate rate (AR) and correct rate (CR) achieve 95.88% and 95.95%, respectively.
