The second step is to subtract the filled form from a previously inserted empty form. In order to make the acting easier and faster a Fourier-Melin transform was used to re-orient the forms correctly. This method has been evaluated with 50 handwriting forms (from both types Bank and University) and the results were approximatively 90%.
