Addmen OMR Software simply needs scanned images of OMR Sheets. Reading, Evaluation and Data processing of OMR Sheets is performed by OMR Answer Sheet Checker Software and OMR Form Reader Software.
You may use any regular scanner with the OMR software
Any model of an ADF Scanner (Automatic Document Feeder) or a flatbed image scanner with good speed of scanning can be used for OMR Sheet Scanning.
OMR Software needs no integration with the OMR image scanner.
