OCR data gathering - how?
Posted on 2006-04-08
I need to look at a solution to gather information from some single page forms via scanner and import the results into Excel.
The forms are single page and consist of multi-choice tickbox answers. I need to be able to feed them into a scanner and have them imported into an Excel spreadsheet to increment totals so I can analyse the answers.
I.E. forms are fed in and I get a total of how many A,B,C,D or E answers there are for each question on the forms.
I realise this will probably require some dedicated software to produce but need some pointers as to what I will need and how it can be done.
