OMR or Optical Mark Recognition software is useful for reading OMR sheets, ones that contain blocks or bubbles. Addmen's OMR software comes with three modules, the second one being the OMR form reader software. This software is exclusively used for reading OMR sheets. It is used for collecting information from OMR forms. The sheet is first scanned and then the software runs through the sheet to gather data and transfer into an Excel sheet.
Unlike the OMR answer sheet checker, the OMR form reader cannot analyse the data. However, it is perfect to collect data from a survey sheet, questionnaire, application form, admission form, etc.
This reader software can read different types of OMR forms.
Apart from Excel sheet, the data collected can be exported to other mediums including Access, XML, SQL, CSV, etc.
The OMR form reader comes with an inbuilt OMR sheet designing software. This helps the user to create different types of OMR forms easily.
The Addmen OMR form reader software has OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology which helps to read printed numbers and barcodes.
It also has ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) technology which helps the software to copy the handwritten text in the form and save them in SQL or Access.
The software also reads images in the OMR forms. These images are captured and saved in the database along with the name of the applicant or the form number.
With the introduction of the OMR form reader software, you do not have to check the survey forms and questionnaires manually. This saves lot of time and manpower too. Also, there are no worries about making errors. The accuracy of the OMR form reader is 100%.
You do not need internet connection to use the Addmen OMR software. Any computer that has Windows 7/8, XP or Vista can be used to install and run this software.
OMR sheets can be printed on regular printing sheets with the help of inkjet or laser printer.
The cost of printing OMR sheets is much less than hardware OMR scanner machines. This software is a complete replacement for the expensive OMR scanners.
This software is used for evaluating objective type answer papers. Once the sheets are scanned and read, the software offers detailed reports of individuals, groups of students, etc.
The OMR sheet reader is fast and accurate too. However, the highlight of this software is the analysis factor that it offers. Such detail reports can be used by the students and teachers for improvements in learning as well as teaching.
This software is used for collecting information from different types of forms like questionnaires, feedback forms, surveys, etc.
The software has the ability of reading pre-printed numbers like form no. with the help of OCR technology. It also captures images of the photograph and signatures on the OMR forms.
