Abstract Character recognition is the important area in image processing and pattern recognition fields. Handwritten character recognition has received extensive attention in academic and production fields. The recognition system can be either on-line or off-line. Off-line handwriting recognition is the subfield of optical character recognition. India is a multi-lingual and multi-script country, where eighteen official scripts are accepted and have over hundred regional languages. In this paper we present Zone and Distance metric based feature extraction system. The character centroid is computed and the image is further divided in to n equal zones. Average distance from the character centroid to the each pixel present in the zone is computed. This procedure is repeated for all the zones present in the numeral image. Finally n such features are extracted for classification and recognition. Feed forward back propagation neural network is designed for subsequent classification and recognition purpose. We obtained 98 % and 96 % recognition rate for Kannada and Telugu numerals respectively.
