Digital Mark Reader (DMR) is not a common OMR solution, but a software based scoring system that enable document scanner to process examination, questionnaire forms, and data entry with mark recognition technology.

Digital Mark Reader can detect bubbles, checkmarks and crossmarks with very fast extraction time per pages (more than 12,000 pages/minutes).

DMR consists of two applications:

  1. DMR Editor (DMR-e) for form design purpose.
  2. DMR Extractor (DMR-x) for data extraction purpose.

DMR Editor (DMR-e)

DMR-e helps user to easily create DMR forms using predefined drag and drop object. DMR forms can be created in minutes without any programming script.

User can also customize all objects in DMR Editor by modifying the properties value of each object without programming knowledge.

DMR Extractor (DMR-x)

DMR-x is used to scan the paper forms, extract the images into data, and export them to Mirosoft Excel File, Text File, or various databases through ODBC. DMR recognition can be set by user to recognize bubbles, checkmarks, and crossmarks.

Instead of processing questionnaire and data entry, DMR Extractor can also process examination scores, combining data from previous DMR examination and create the reports.
