What is a fixed form?
A fixed form, also known as a structured form, is a document with a standard structure, such as an invoice, survey, or application. All of these documents follow a single format, with room for variation in the contents of each document. For example, the job application forms for a given company are identical to one another, with the exception of information that the applicants enter. Because of this uniformity, it is convenient to process these forms automatically.
Automatically processing fixed forms
You can process fixed forms automatically with the help of document automation software. This software uses optical character recognition (OCR) to recognize printed text, as well as intelligent character recognition (ICR) to recognize handwritten text. To process fixed forms automatically, the only thing that you have to do is scan them.
