By James Reilly Automatic Input Devices

Introduction : 

Introduction Some input systems can be automated This can reduce the amount of time taken to input things into a computer There are several devices that can be used to input data automatically. OMR Bar Codes OCR Magnetic Strips MICR

Optical mark Recognition : 

Optical mark Recognition This is a system that reads marks on a special grid that it can recognise marks against This is a good thing as it cuts down on time spent inputting these things into a computer The system is often used in the lottery and in marking exam papers
