Bahasa Melayu , Jawi , template creation


The Bahasa Malaya language is a widely used language of 3 southern border provinces in Thailand. Jawi is an important alphabet of Bahasa Melayu. Handwritten letters are generally used in these areas for studying in elementary school, official communication, documents and use in signs and in government places. Therefore, the purposes of this research were to develop a template matching translation process for Jawi alphabet into Thai language with thresholding techniques. In the initial process, handwritten letters were transformed to typewritten words and creating an image file using 100 image datasets. This research used image processing techniques including color spaces adjustment, thresholding values, gradient direction and Image segmentation. Thus, In the Create Template Matching was stored in a database for translation processes method/ The results provided in this this study can be continued in the next step of research correctly.
