Scanning of OMR Sheets is a little different from normal sheet scanning. An OMR sheet is a technical format which is going to be read by a software or a machine. So for an image to be readable by the OMR scanning software or OMR scanning machine, it is required that the sheets are scanned according to some guidelines.
Most people still have an impression that the main task of OMR reading is done by a special Optical Mark Reader Device popularly known as OMR scanning machine or OMR Scanner. But this was old technology and is very costly. This old machine based scanning has changed long back and is replaced by the OMR Sheet Scanner Software.
