OMR - Optical Mark ReadingOMR Forms

What is an Optical Mark Reader?
An Optical Mark Reader (OMR) is a machine for reading "tick box" information from printed forms into a computer without using a keyboard.

How does Optical Mark Reading work?
A simple pen or pencil mark is made on the form to indicate each selected response such as answers to survey questions. The completed forms are scanned by an Optical Mark Reader which detects the presence of a mark by measuring the reflected light. The OMR reader then interprets the pattern of marks into a data record and sends this to your computer for storage, analysis and reporting.

Optical Mark Reader (OMR) systems provide a fast and accurate way of entering data into computer. An essential ingredient for the successful use of OMR and OCR is a well-designed and accurately printed form. FFM has its own specialist form design department to produce these forms, is the result of a combination of aesthetic judgement and technical knowledge.
