This paper describes a method for on-line handwritten Lao character recognition by using Dynamic Programming Matching (DPM). It extracts feature points along the way from pen-down to pen-up, then uses DPM to match those feature points with the feature points for a template pattern of each character class and obtains a similarity for each character class. It selects the character class with the largest similarity as the recognition result. We also compare the recognition method by using DPM with
