Due to the different shapes, sizes, and handwriting styles, selection of proper feature set is more important to get high recognition accuracy. This study aimed to evaluate the performance of isolated handwritten basic characters and digits’ recognition using zoning accompanied by spatial relationships, especially directional relationships. This paper is based on diagonal element feature extraction approach for the recognition of handwritten Bangla characters. This system is implemented with samples of 10,000 handwritten Bangla characters and also with a database of 10,000 samples of Bangla numerals. Experimental result reveals that the success rate is 88.34% for Basic Bangla characters and 92.43% for Bangla numerals.
