To reduce recognition errors in handwritten text, its good idea to use one-line-shapes for letters other than the originals but similar to it. This method was introduced first for English language, named Graffitti, by Jeffrey Hawkins. That makes online recognition performance very high and very fast. This paper suggests one-line-shapes for all Arabic letters, and a very efficient algorithm to recognize these shapes. Using this new method database was reduced dramatically. To achieve a suitable recognition rate it's enough to use 1-3 shapes for every letter.
