Handwriting recognition has been a challenging research area with many functions in everyday life. An application is capable of recognizing letters and digits can convert handwritten text into digital format, allowing those who prefer not too type or unable to type to take notes by hand. This paper takes two different neural networks, artificial neural network and Convolutional neural network, and shows the steps both networks take to recognizes English handwritten letters and transfer it to regular typeface. This is done by the use of the library Pytorch and EMNIST Dataset. This paper looks at the history, application, architecture and training process of these two different handwriting recognition programs.
