Abstract: In order to improve the recognition rate, this document proposes an automatic system to recognize isolated printed Tifinagh characters by using a fusion of 3 classifiers and a combination of some features extraction methods. The Legendre moments, Zernike moments and Hu moments are used as descriptors in the features extraction phase due to their invariance to translation, rotation and scaling changes. In the classification phase, the neural network, the multiclass SVM (Support Vector Machine) and the nearest neighbour classifiers are combined together. The experimental results of each single features extraction method and each single classification method are compared with our approach to show its robustness.
