dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT : An application capable of reading graphically-encoded information is beneficial to blind or visually impaired students. Such a system needs to recognize and understand visual markings and their arrangement as presented in a diagram image. In that light, this thesis examines the practical possibility of a real world system for the automatic recognition and interpretation of machine-printed Finite State Automata diagrams. The suggested system uses known image processing and pattern recognition methods to extract the visual markings from the diagram image pixels. A second stage, to interpret the meaning of the diagram, is based on modeling the language of Finite State Automata diagrams using Constraint Multiset Grammars. Our results show that a practical application for automatic interpretation of Finite State Automata diagrams is possible.en_ZA
