I think Optical Mark recognition, interoperating check boxes and so on, is a feature of the abbyy stuff that Document OCR is built on so I figured Document OCR component might give me some means of doing OMR. does anybody know it this is the case? if that is the case, does anybody know how to use it? before anyone proposed that it does it by default, I have used Document OCR one a few documents and all the check boxes get turned into the letter O or D.
We will soon be releasing enhancements to the PDF connector. One of those enhancements is Optical Mark Recognition.
When using the DocumentOCR component to OCR a PDF so that it can be used in the PDF Connector, make sure you set the exportWithoutImages property on the ProcessToPDF method to false. This will include the original image (where your optical marks will be) in the output PDF.
Watch for an announcement here and on the build notes for the release of the new PDF functionality.
