I need a software to scan surveys into electronic files (spss, txt, csv, or other).
The survey was produced with MS word, so the software must be able to read data from Word produced surveys.
And I’d prefer not to buy an one year licence, but a full version (open source solutions are of course welcome).
It so happens, I am researching this too. I’ve heard of a few, like Survey Tracker plus, Snap Survey, and Survey Pro. But they are pretty expensive. I just noticed that Remark Office might be the best fit for us and it’s < $1,000. I think. But yeah, so far I haven’t found any cheap solutions, let alone any free ones.
Really, all we need is software to recognize the multiple choice answers from a paper survey (saving someone having to manually data enter 1000s of surveys). We don’t need all the bells and whistles like reporting or analytics…just get the answers in a file format so it can be used with SPSS, etc. But seems all these software options are super expensive. :/
