Q. What does AutoRec do?

AutoRec reads handwritten documents and OMR sheets. AutoRec can also read barcodes and crop image fields from a document.Besides this, AutoRec can read machine print also. The sheets need to be structured as per the requirement of ICR/OMR technology. AutoRec makes typing unnecessary whereby a great deal of time can be saved. Hundreds of thousands of documents can be read at phenomenally high speeds. Single user versions of AutoRec can handle a few hundred to a few thousand forms per day. AutoRec can also read semi structured forms which might not be fully satisfying the requirements of the ICR technology.
Q. How does AutoRec work?

Paper documents are first scanned and scanned images are read by the software.
Recognized text is proofread for mistakes and then sent to the database.
Q. Can AutoRec read a letter which I have written to my friend?

Recognition technology has not yet matured enough to be able to effectively read flowing handwriting where letters are connected to each other. In ICR forms each letter or numeral needs to be entered in a small rectangular box.
Q. How is AutoRec different from an OMR scanner?

OMR scanner can only read marks and is blind to the handwritten fields in the document. While as AutoRec can read OMR marks and handwriting at the same time. AutoRec preserves the images of the documents which an OMR scanner can’t do. OMR scanners are extremely costly and require a great deal of maintenance.
Q. What sort of scanner has to be used with AutoRec?

Any scanner with ‘colour drop out’ feature using TWAIN protocol can be used.
Q. What is the accuracy of AutoRec?

AutoRec is 100% accurate for OMR sheets. It’s accuracy for handwritten documents is 98% according to benchmarking done at PTUCET.
Q. Can more than one scanners be attached to the software?

Yes, multiple scanning stations, recognition stations and proofreading stations can be set up in a network.
Q. If we change the design of the ICR form, shall we have to depend on your programmers?

You are free to design any number of templates in the Designing Module of the software. Your dependence on the programmers is nil because of this facility.
