Optical Mark Recognition - A method of recognizing handwritten marks, which are read by specialized scanning equipment, and then converting them into a value that can be interpreted and translated into readable instructions. This allows for automating the processing of the information. Generally the forms have a timing mark or sensing mark printed on them that indicates to the scanner that a handwritten entry has been made in that location. Scoring results from student tests, pomotional check-offs and election ballots are a few of the standard types of documents using OMR. OMR is also used by some inserting equipment to insure that the correct pieces of a mailiing are inserted into each mailing package. Each individual piece has a printed mark which is read by the inserting equipment, telling it which pieces mail together.
