|Author(s)||Omega Norton, Beauty Arora, Rajesh Kumar|
|Abstract||Handwriting is a very important mode used for communication. It has been in use for a long time for various purposes. Handwriting is found in many criminal cases and its analysis is quite tedious work to do and even time-consuming. But it would be better if the gender of the writer is known; it would be helpful in narrowing the search of the suspects. In this work, we have tried to explore certain features which could be used for the identification of the gender of the writer. Various researches have been done to determine gender from handwriting in various languages. No such work has been done on any of the Indian languages yet. We have selected the Marathi language, the script used for writing is the Devanagari script, which is the script for some other languages used in India. The database was created and the features were extracted manually including line quality, pen pressure, formation of dots, and many more. However, few features are seen in males while some others are in females. The study is still not conclusive and looking for further work on it.|
