The program is based on the image processing techniques and it deals with the arabic language characters. In this system we have 40 characters and 400 words, for each character and for each word we have 4 templates and 25 squared values, and the matching prcess based on the intensity of the colors in each field. This program summarized in two main parts : a learning part, and a testing part. The character or the word which is written will be matched with its template and show the result of the test. This program shows a good results and it recognize characters in many epoches with a high accuracy (98.60% for Characters and 96.50% for words), in which the experiments were applied on children with ages between 6-11 years.
