Many researches have been conducted on the recognition of Thai characters. Different approaches, such as neural network, syntactic, and structural methods, have been proposed. However, the success in recognizing Thai characters is still limited, compared to English characters. This paper proposes an approach to recognize the printed Thai characters using the hybrid of global feature, local features, fuzzy membership function and the neural network. The global feature classifies all characters into seven main groups. Then the local features and the neural network are applied to identify the characters.
