Arabic characters illustrate intricate, multidimensional and cursive visual information. Developing a machine learning system for Arabic character recognition is an exciting research. This paper addresses a neural computing concept for Arabic Optical Character Recognition (OCR). The method is based on local image sampling of each character to a selected feature matrix and feeding these matrices into a Bidirectional Associative Memory followed by Multilayer Perceptron (BAMMLP) with back
