Recognition rate of characters in the handwritten is still a big challenge for the research because of a shape variation, scale and format in a given handwritten character. A more complicated handwritten character recognition system needs a better feature extraction technique that deal with such variation of hand writing. In other hand, to obtain efficient and accurate recognition rely on off-line English handwriting character, the similarity in the character traits is an important issue to be differentiated in an off-line English handwriting to. In recognizing a character, character handwriting format could be implicitly analyzed to make the representation of the unique hidden features of the individual's character is allowable. Unique features can be used in recognizing characters which can be considerable when the similarity between two characters is high. However, the problem of the similarity in off-line English character handwritten was not taken into account thus, leaving a high possibility of degrading the similarity error for intra-class [same character] with the decrease of the similarity error for inter-class [different character]. Therefore, in order to achieve better performance, this paper proposes a discretization feature algorithm to reduce the similarity error for intra-class [same character]. The mean absolute error is used as a parameter to calculate the similarity between inter and/or intra class characters. Test results show that the identification rate give a better result with the proposed hybrid Geo-Discretization method.
