To date, automatic handwriting recognition systems are far from being perfect and often they need a post editing where a human intervention is required to check and correct the results of such systems. We propose have a new interactive, on-line framework which, rather than full automation, aims at assisting the human in the proper recognition-transcription process; that is, facilitate and speed up their transcription task of handwritten texts. This framework combines the efficiency of automatic handwriting recognition systems with the accuracy of the human transcriptor. The best result is a cost-effective perfect transcription of the handwriting text images.
