I'm doing a application to improve kids handwriting using mobile application. In first stage I just want to detect only letters. so I provide the mobile app page with white background and they have to write a letter in black color.

My approach is, when kids write a letter (for ex; 'A') and convert that screen to image, and compare with a template 'A'. so the based on the matching percentage, I want to give them some marks.

That is my initial idea. I did some research but still couldn't found way to identify the matching percentage using template matching technique.

Is template matching good for this kind of application? or another suggestions? What about the feature matching technique? is it better than template matching?

Can someone please give me some idea?
