Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Character recognition is a classical issue which has been devoted by a lot of researchers. Making character
recognition system more widely available in natural scene images might open up interesting possibility to
use as an input interface of characters and an annotation method for images. Nevertheless, it is still difficult to
recognize all sorts of fonts including decorated characters such as characters depicted on signboards. The decorated
characters are constructed by using some special techniques for attracting viewers’ attentions. Therefore, it is hard
to obtain good recognition results by the existing OCRs. In this paper, we propose a new character recognition system using SOM. The SOM is employed to extract an essential structure concerning the topology from a character.
The extracted topological structure from each character is used to matching and the recognition is performed on the basis of the topological matching. Experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed method in most
forms of characters.
