In this paper, we present an off line Tifinaghe characters recognition system. Texts are scanned using a flatbed scanner. Digitized text are normalised, noise is reduced using a median filter, baseline skew is corrected by the use of the Hough transform, and text is segmented into line and lines into words. Features are extracted using the Walsh Transformation. Finally characters are recognized by a multilayer neural network.
