What is OMR?

OMR stands for Optical Mark Reader or Optical Mark Recognition. OMR is used to read forms, which have variable size field entries. The entry can be in the form of a check mark or a cross or some scribble. These forms are not restricted to automate entry sheets where the user needs to fill in the oval shape with a number 2 pencil. OMR usually needs a blank form and a definition of entry zones. The OMR detects marks in the scanned image and classifies them accordingly.
