PDF to CSV
« on: January 14, 2008, 10:38 AM »
This task is driving me mad

Here is the problem:

Preprinted surveys are sent.  Respondents check boxes on the surveys.  The surveys will be scanned.  The responses need to be captured in a spreadsheet or database.

Obviously, a Scantron would work better.  However, I'm stuck working with these checkbox pages and can't find an effective solution to capturing the responses.

Can anyone recommend software or a process for doing this?

If you can change to interactive pdfs they can actually sent the results themselves using small xml based datafiles., which you can process a lot easier and use in a database?

Have you tried Nuance Omnipage ?

Can't guarantee it'll work - I use it for OCR rather than this kind of thing.
