In this paper the problem of improving the capability of statistical character classifiers based on finite and sparse training set is addressed. A significant improvement is obtained coupling standard classifiers based on the k-Nearest Neighbors technique with a second higher level classification stage. This method has been applied to three existing classifiers reducing the error rate at zero rejection of about 17%.
