The CheckMarket Scribe tool is a very user friendly tool for the input of open answers coming from paper survey forms.
Your respondents complete a paper questionnaire. This is then sent to CheckMarket for processing. We make a scan of the forms. Answers to closed questions are recognized using OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) and automatically added to the online results. The handwritten responses to open questions are stored as images and added to a CheckMarket Scribe project.
Different users are then assigned to the project and can simultaneously work on the transcript. On their computer screens they see the question, an image of the handwritten response and an open text field. In this field the user then simply transcribes the text the respondent wrote. The answers will be available in real time in CheckMarket’s reports.
