                         the automatic recognition of handwritten dates on Brazilian bank 
                         checks. Considering the omni-writer context, we detail our 
                         recognition module dedicated to processing the month field. This 
                         module is based on the combination of holistic and analytical 
                         approaches with a fixed lexicon. Both approaches operate with a 
                         single explicit segmentation technique to provide a grapheme 
                         sequence for the purposed hidden Markov models of each recognizer. 
                         We show significant improvements when combining both modules to 
                         get a satisfactory recognition rate considering the small database 
                         images we work with. Finally, we present various perspectives for
