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%.
