OMR Scanner Price and Models
Addmen's OMR software is a technology that reads and evaluates OMR sheets. Unlike the old OMR machine, it does not scan the OMR sheets. However, you do not need any special scanner to scan these sheets. A regular image scanner is sufficient to scan the OMR sheets. Once these sheets are scanned, the OMR software processes them with the help of the OMR answer sheet checker or OMR form reader. You can use a scanner of any model or brand, but make sure that it has a good scanning speed.
Types of Scanners
Two types of scanners available in the market can be used for scanning OMR sheets: the flatbed scanner and the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) scanner.
The ADF scanner (also known as multi-sheet fed scanner) is more preferred than the flatbed scanner because in the latter you have to feed the sheets one by one. On the other hand, you have the facility of keeping 30-50 OMR sheets in the ADF scanner pocket. In other words, the ADF scanner saves lot of time and effort. However, if you do not have to scan many OMR sheets, the flatbed scanner would be enough for your use.

You must remember that even if the speed of the scanner is low or high, the OMR software would be able to read 3-5 scanned OMR sheets in one second.
