Using OCR for ORM function

I am interested in extending my current ASPOSE product purchase to ASPOSE.TOTAL enterprise but want to know some limitations in the OCR component. Using ASPOSE.OCR I would like to leverage the library to meet an OMR requirement.

The capability that is required is to detect if a check-box positioned in a certain location on a scanned form is populated or empty.
I recognize that the checkbox could be “checked”, “x’d out”, “shaded in” or contain any other symbol a user wished to enter. I believe using the OCR library I could potentially determine if the check-box is “empty” or contains “something” - I do not need to differentiate what symbol actually exists in the check-box.

Can ASPOSE.OCR meet this requirement or should I be looking at a different .Net component? Any code snippits I can use to spike this out?

Alternate suggestions?
