Abstract : In the field of isolated handwritten word recognition, the development of highly effective verification systems to reject words that do not belong to the lexicon or present ambiguities is still an active research topic. In this paper, a novel verification architecture based on support vector machine scoring and on a new algorithm for tuning multiple reject class-dependent thresholds is presented. In essence, a set of support vector machines appended to a standard HMM based recognition system provides class-dependant confidence measures employed by the verification mechanism to accept or reject the recognized hypotheses. In order to tune these class-dependent rejection thresholds, an algorithm based on dynamic programming is proposed which focus on maximizing the recognition rate for a given imposed error rate. Preliminary reported results of experiments carried out on Techno-Vision program RIMES database show that this approach outperforms state of the art rejection methods.
