Comparison and Difference between OCR and OMR

  1. OCR extracts image data from scanned document. OMR extracts data from specially prepared data collection form.
  2. In OCR, text produced is not always accurate especially if original document has smudged text. In OMR, forms can only be read accurately if marks are nicely filled.
  3. OCR is much suitable for visual impaired people who will use text to speech software. OMR is extremely fast method of input data as marks are only needed to be detected.
