We present a comparison of elastic matching schemes for writer dependent on-line handwriting recognition of isolated Tamil characters. Three different features are considered namely, preprocessed x-y coordinates, quantized slope values, and dominant point coordinates. Seven schemes based on these three features and dynamic time warping distance measure are compared with respect to recognition accuracy, recognition speed, and number of training templates. Along with these results, possible grouping strategies and error analysis is also presented in brief.
