What are Optical Mark Recognition (OMR), Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR)?

Okay, we’ll keep this relatively simple. OMR is the reading of check boxes or ovals on forms and documents – think multiple choice answers on an examination. OCR is the reading of computer print, usually from a document or an image of a document – think a printed unique number at the top of a page. ICR is the reading of hand writing.
