Abstract
We build a distance education application of a Chinese handwriting education system that allows
students to do practice at anytime and anywhere. As an intelligent tutor, the system can
automatically check the handwriting errors, such as the stroke production errors, stroke sequence
error and stroke relationship error. Then our system should provide useful feedback to the student.
In this paper, attributed relational graph matching is used to locate the handwriting errors. The
pruning strategy is applied to reduce the computational time. The experiment results show that our
proposal can handle more handwriting error cases than existing methods with a higher accuracy.
