WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PENCIL READ AND INK READ AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?
Lots of scanners say they can read both pencil and ink marks, including us. But not all scanners support both pencil and ink forms. Due to the type of light source used to recognize marks, pencil forms can be very colorful, since the read-head will only recognize the pencil marks on those forms—the color of the form doesn’t matter. Pencil forms are often more visually engaging, but you lose the ability to support ink responses. On the other hand, ink forms use what’s known as a drop out color (usually some type of red or orange). That way, the scanner can ignore anything that’s red or orange, letting it read either pencil or ink marks from the form.
Why does this matter? It matters because scanning accuracy depends on the read-head and processing software knowing what is part of the form and what is a mark. Scantron’s guaranteed scannable forms and industry-leading mark recognition software ensure that you get the same reliable results, regardless of which type of form you use.
