      Abstract

      Invariant features play an essential role in many pattern recognition applications due to their robustness to different environmental settings. In this research, two of the invariant moments, the Zernike Moment (ZM) and the Legendre Moment (LM), have been investigated for their suitability and computational efficiency in Arabic
      letter recognition. This paper starts with an introduction on Arabic letter characteristics before moving on to a literature review of current letter recognition strategies and systems. The concepts and algorithms of the ZM and
      LM techniques are then examined. To validate the new approach, a prototype system has been developed with several experiments carried out using a standard database called IF/ENIT which contains handwritten Tunisian town names and this database is used by many research groups working on recognition systems.
