OCR testing


I am looking at methods of quickly capturing 'test' data. I have been looking at OCR as a methiod and wondered if anyone has it / is using it . If you do, where did you get the software and how much did it cost?

    You could try the free working demo at, but check that it works with your scanner first (seems to support most). It costs £390 for a single licence, so I guess it would pay for itself PDQ. You’d need to have (or buy) a scanner and a document feeder, too, of course. It doesn’t need special stationery, ink, fonts etc.: you can ‘train’ it to understand your own documents. However there are free fonts, barcode generators etc. on the above site.

    If you try it I’d be interested to know what you think.

    PS I’m assuming you mean OMR, not OCR?
