Term: OMR

Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) is a technology for extracting data from marked fields, such as checkboxes on printed tests, surveys or ballots. Since OMR technology only recognizes the mark and not the context of a form, positional data where marks are expected to appear must be pre-established.
