A comparative study of peculiarities of asynchronous handwriting with time gap
Author(s): Palak Aneja
Abstract: It is necessary for every document expert to discriminate between authentic and forged handwritings. Although at times, when contemporary writing is not available, it is relatively difficult to ascertain the fine demarcations and bring out the peculiarities from handwriting. The range of variations in writing from different span of life, documents and instruments called as asynchronous writing, vary more than the synchronous writing. In present research, 85 samples were collected, 5 samples from each individual out of which three samples are collected from their Past writing (1-32 years) and two in their Present writing. For the present samples individuals were asked to write printed model text. The results were based on the handwriting characteristics which were more prone to variations (Slant, Initial and Terminal Stroke, Spacing and Connectivity between the letters) as well as those which remain unaffected by showing consistency (Skill, Rhythm) in due course.
