Acoustic Emissions of Handwriting

Speaker: Andrew Seniuk and Dorothea Blostein

Handwriting and speech recognition are problems with a long history. However, no studies have considered the sounds produced by handwriting, an information source which has connections to both of the aforementioned. This presentation will summarise our work in pen acoustic emissions, including demonstrations, early results on recognition of cursive handwritten characters, other possible applications, and some additional hypotheses for discussion.
