In this study we tried to cover the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems used for off-line Arabic Optical Text Recognition (AOTR). We cast some light on the characteristics of Arabic writing. This paper will also present a general concept on the different stages normally followed for handwritten character recognition: preprocessing, segmentation, feature extraction, classification, and post-processing. In addition, evaluation methods for different AOTR systems are presented.
