OmrEngine Class


Provides a high level OMR forms functionality to create forms objects and process forms fields.

LEADTOOLS OMR toolkit provides high-level classes to process OMR bubbles in exams and surveys. OmrEngine allows creating forms, automatic detection of OMR bubbles, automatic alignment, and processing of different types of fields.

LEADTOOLS supports OmrFields, OcrField, ImageField and BarcodeField.

OmrField can be easily detected and extracted by providing the area of the group of OMR bubbles using ITemplateForm.ExtractInfo.

The OmrEngine can be used to create and load ITemplateForm and IRecognitionForm internal objects.


OMR Example Workflow

The following example is a snippet of a larger example that demonstrates a basic workflow using LEADTOOLS OMR:
1. Create and initialize a new OmrEngine
2. Load the RasterImage
3. Create an ITemplateForm object from the rasterimage
4. Create a few zones and add them to the template
5. Save the template to a file on disk
6. Apply OMR to the answer key
7. Apply OMR to the individual forms
8. Analyze the documents and print the results
9. Shut down the OcrEngine associated with this OmrEngine

You can also download the complete example in Visual Studio 2017.
