Objectives: This paper investigates processing time comparison of handwritten Jawi characters recognition application between offline and online version. Methods/Analysis: The use of web server for processing offline tasks is considerable. This process is covered by translating offline application code into web-based programming language such as PHP. Total of 100 types of handwritten characters were used for this experiment. These characters were transformed using scaling transformation into four categories. Findings: The result shown online application has better performance than offline. The online application succeeds to extract moment feature of handwritten characters. Novelty/Improvement: The comparison was performed for choosing better Optical Character recognition (OCR) application system: online or offline method.
