The Addmen OMR software reads and evaluates the OMR sheets after they have been scanned. So the first step is to scan the sheets. You do not require any special scanner for this purpose. A regular image scanner is all you need to scan the OMR sheets.
You can use a flatbed image scanner or an automatic document feeder (ADF) scanner for scanning the sheets.
The ADF scanner is best if you have to scan lot of sheets at a time. This type of scanner has a pocket that can hold 30-50 sheets at a time unlike a flatbed scanner where you have to feed one sheet at a time.
You do not have to integrate the OMR software with the scanner. You can scan the sheets in a computer that does not have the software.
We have provided a list of ADF image scanners for OMR sheet scanning in India. Most of these scanner models are economic and at the same time have a good performance.
*The price of the scanners may differ slightly as per manufacturer.

Starting Range > The basic model of ADF scanner is available between Rs. 8000 and Rs. 10000. Such scanners can scan up to 10 OMR sheets in a minute. So if you have to scan around 1000 sheets at a time, such scanners are perfect. They are good and durable too.
Professional Range > If you have a high workload, it is best to go for a professional range of ADF scanners. These are available at the range of Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 90,000. The lower end of such scanners can scan 20-30 sheets every minute while the high end ones can scan 80-120 pages every minute.
There are two types of OMR solutions available in the market; one is the OMR software and the other is OMR scanning machine.
The software reads sheets that are scanned using regular scanner. You can either use a flatbed scanner or an ADF scanner. Image scanners which are available at inexpensive rates can also be used
The OMR scanner machine has an inbuilt scanner and a data processing software. These machines are expensive and special, thick sheets are required for scanning.
