What's new in queXF 1.17.0:
- Manual banding has been updated to allow for box group merging and the creation of free text boxes in empty space (no borders required). Page corners can now be solid boxes instead of corner lines. An update to the queXML PDF generation functions will mirror this change. OCR (in addition to ICR) can be enabled (using tesseract) to allow for printed numbers to be read from the form (including as page 'barcodes'). A secondary position for page barcodes can also be defined if you wish to place them in different places on different forms. Many bugs have also been fixed. Damien Zammit has contributed improvements to the ICR functionality including improving the detection algorithm and implementing smarter aspect ratio conversions.

In other words, queXF is a CADE (Computer Assisted Data Entry) utility that is capable of processing filled paper forms, including survey questionnaires, generated by queXML. It is designed as an alternative to the Remark OMR and Cardiff Teleform programs.
Features at a glance
Key features include support for an unlimited number of operators that can be used for verification, support for importing queXMLPDF forms that have been generated by the Limesurvey application, the ability to accurately guess and automatically detect boxes’ locations on the form without manually overlaying boxes, as well as distributed processing support.
In additions, the software allows users to review forms directly from the Internet, confirming that the data is accurate, integrates with the queXML program, produces ready-to-scan forms, handles isolated characters, recognizes handwriting, and outputs data from forms in various formats, including Labelled CSV, CSV, PSPP (SPSS), DDI, as well as formats with fixed width.
Another interesting feature is the ability to export data post or pre verification stages. Please note that the built-in ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) engine powers the isolated character handwriting recognition functionality of the application. queXF is a cross-platform utility that can be used on any operating system where a supported web browser (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer) exists.
Under the hood and requirements
The queXF software was written entirely in the PHP server-side programming language, which means that it can only be run on a web server, either locally or on a cloud server infrastructure. It should be deployed on a server powered by a GNU/Linux system that runs the Apache web server, but nginx is also supported, as well as IIS.
