OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) software has the ability to read black marks from completed OMR sheets and process them accordingly. These sheets are specially designed using the OMR sheet designing feature available with the Addmen OMR software. The OMR software also has OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for reading printed text, and ICR or Intelligent Character Recognition, which is used for reading written text and images.
Addmen OMR software's sheet designing software is easy and convenient to use.
You can drag and drop the bubbles, grids and required blocks from the options available for creating different types of OMR forms and OMR answer sheets.
Some sheets like answer sheets as well as some forms require a pre-printed roll number, serial number or a bar code.
With the Addmen sheet designing software, you can generate and print these numbers. They are later detected and read by the OMR software.
In terms of ICR, the sheet designing software can be used to create blocks or spaces where individuals can provide handwritten text.
This usually includes things like name, address, phone number, details of marks, opinions on feedback and survey forms, etc.
You can also provide a place for including the photograph or image of the individual.
There are no rules and restrictions as to where these ICR and OCR blocks should appear. You are free to place them wherever you want. In other words, you can design the OMR sheets as per your design standards.
When the OMR software reads the OMR sheets with OCR and ICR elements, it transfers the data like the serial number, barcode, handwritten text and images, along with the OMR data into an Excel sheet. It provides 100% accurate results if the input is correct.
