OMR Scanning of PDF Files


We receive PDF files of test answer sheets which we normally print and scan with a true OMR scanner.

We want to use Aspose OCR/OMR software to scan the PDF sheets directly. Is that possible without having to convert the PDF files to JPG or other image files first? What tools do you have to accomplish this?
