Abstract: Recognition of Odia handwritten and machine characters and numerals is an emerging area of research and finds extensive applications in banks, offices and industries. Very little standard research work has been reported on recognition of handwritten and machine characters and numerals. This paper makes an in depth study on the existing literature on recognition of machine and handwritten Odia characters and numerals. The key steps  such as preprocessing, segmentation, feature extraction and classification involved in the recognition process of Odia characters are dealt in details. The well known techniques employed for segmentation, feature extraction and classification tasks of Odia characters are reviewed and their relative strengths and weaknesses are outlined. The paper also discusses the current trends and future research scope in the area of Odia character recognition. It is expected that this paper will be useful to those who will be interested to work in the fields of recognition of Odia characters.
