End-User-Directed Presentation in Online Handwritten Character Recognition

      Disclosed is a method for presenting recognition results in
online handwritten character recognition, wherein the results are
instantly presented to a user in order to prompt correction of
recognition errors.

      The character set used for an application is usually determined
by the requirements of the application.  For example, in money
transfer in Japan, only uppercase letters are used for personal
names.  Even if a user writes lowercase letters on a form, the
corresponding uppercase letters must be used in transferring the
money.  Accordingly, in developing an electronic form for this
application, it is reasonable to restrict the character set to
uppercase letters.  However, a user may become uneasy when letters
written in lowercase are displayed in uppercase, because they seem to
be recognition errors.  On the other hand, simply expanding the
recognition character set to include lowercase letters does not solve
the problem, because it is difficult to accurately discriminate
between uppercase and lowercase letters, especially in Japanese where
the lowercase letters have the same shapes as the uppercase ones.
The point here is that the design of the user interface should take
account of other factors besides the application requirements.

      In the disclosed method, the recognition result characters are
presented to a user in such a way that the sizes and positions of t...
