How to detect rough tick marking on a survey form

Is this possible to decode the tick marks (markings by hand) on a survey form? It has manual markings done by staff, which is rough, like in this image:

Since this is done by human hand so the markings are not following any pattern, they are round, cross or simple line.

Ideally i would like to have OCR Encoded text with the Ticked statement highlighted/decoded.

Any ideas? Any sdk methods? Thx

Unfortunately, ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK does not support this kind of checkmarks.

Theoretically, you can try ABBYY FlexiCapture or ABBYY FlexiCapture Engine (if you need SDK) for your scenario. However it may be a very difficult task for our technologies because the checkmarks contain figures and the markings are really very different. If you are interested to try it, please fill this form at our site to get a trial version of ABBYY FlexiCapture.
