Barcodes and machine printed text can be great space savers on your paper forms for adding know information. Many times these items are used as identifiers (Form, Page, Location, Respondent), but really they are a great way to add any known information to your forms and data. Remark Office OMR can read a variety of 1D and 2D barcodes. One barcode example, Code 3 of 9, automatically installs in your Windows Font directory when you install Remark Office OMR. Optionally, you can download the font and install itself. This barcode font can be used in Microsoft Word like any other font. In this video we show you how to set up your template field for a barcode region:

In addition to barcode recognition, Remark Office OMR contains optical character recognition (OCR) to read machine printed text. This video shows you how to create an OCR region in Remark Office OMR’s template editor and explains the proper fonts and sizes that should be used for optimal performance:
