Abstract

The NIST Open Handwriting Recognition and Translation Evaluation 2013 (NIST OpenHaRT¿13) is a performance evaluation assessing technologies that transcribe and translate text in document images. This evaluation is focused on recognizing Arabic text images and translating them into English. A Handwriting Recognition and Translation system typically consists of a combination of two systems: a Text Recognition system and a Machine Translation system. In this paper, we present the UPV participation in the NIST OpenHaRT 2013 evaluation. For the Text Recognition system we used the TL toolkit for training and recognition. For the Machine Translation system we used the Moses toolkit for training and decoding. Results in this evaluation are challenging and they significantly outperform our previous results in the OpenHaRT 2010 evaluation.
