Scanner used for scanning OMR sheets and OMR Mark Reader Software are not linked. Scanning can be done on any PC. No compatibility is required. Scanner of Any Company, Any Brand, Any Model can be used to scan OMR Sheets for Addmen OMR Softwares.
You can scan using whatever scanner you have. You can scan on any PC, wherever you have installed your document scanner. It is not compulsory that the OMR sheet scanning can be done only on the computer where you have your OMR Software installed. OMR Software installation and OMR Sheet Scanning can be done on different computers.
This gives you absolute freedom, because if you have many branches, but you do not want to spend much money on OMR Software, then you can scan the OMR sheets at your branches/ other centres and bring them to head office by email or FTP. So you can do OMR Sheet checking centrally at your head office using the single OMR Software license.
Addmen OMR Sheet Reader Software uses scanned images of OMR Sheets.
OMR Sheet Scanning Software reads single sided & duplex sheets.
Ease of scanning in BMP/TIFF at 100-200dpi in B/W, grayscale & colour modes.
Optical Mark Scanner Software reads OMR, OCR, Image & Barcode.
Single pass reading of photo & data, i.e. there is no need to scan at separate resolutions if the OMR sheet has elements like photo or barcode field. All the reading can be made from a single image.
The software has inbuilt colour dropping feature, which is used to eliminated unwanted colour that might conflict with the accurate detection of black marks. Thus, whatever is read in Addmen OMR Software, it is read accurately.
There might be a difference in the intensity of printing and this difference will reflect during scanning too, but the sheets can be scanned as it is because the addmen OMR scanner software has the capacity to auto adjust the intensity of the impressions on the scanned sheet. So sometimes if a faulty printed sheet is scanned, then the flexibility of the software can be used rather than resorting to finding out and rescanning the sheet.
Tilted and skewed OMR Scanned images are auto corrected inside the software. Any ways software gives 100% accurate results. In some cases, if the OMR Sheets are distorted beyond the alert limit, then software prompts the user to manually approve the results by having a quick look on the sheet image. This is how the result is correct in all circumstances.
Rotated or upside down, scanned images can be rotated in the software and read correctly as well.
Addmen OMR Software has the feature to auto read the sheets from the folder as soon as they are created by the scanner. So when there is a continuous task of reading sheets like collection of application forms in the admission season, the operator has to simply put the sheet in the scanner pocket and press the scan button on the scanner. The sheet will be automatically scanned, the image will be formed in a folder and as soon as the image is formed the sheet will be read and data inserted into the required location.
