The project is about a webpage where the user will be able to use a scanner (through TWAIN I suppose or any other way)in order to scan a paper form that is on the scanner by using some default custom settings (settings will not change every time). The scanned page should be uploaded in a webpage with a specific automatic name.
The form will always be the same. The page is separated in three parts horizontaly. Each time only one part is filled (the top one), the next time the middle one and after that the last one (at the bottom of the page).
Now on the left or right or wherever side of the page (I can arrange this) there will be a number or a barcode (I can also choose between a number, or a letter or a barcode) always as I said on a specific position. This will be the key for the first 3 letters filename of the scanned page and the rest of the name I ll just let you know later. Also it will be the key for where the page will be saved on the remote server.
So I need some kind of OCR or barcode recognition.
Also every saved filename should be saved as well in the MySQL server.
The webserver will be in PHP and will be attached in a Joomla website.
Finally (that is optional, I m not sure if will implement this) is:
only one part of the three parts of the page should be scanned each time, depending on which part was scanned last time or depending on the date etc. But this is optional.
Just a note: I m a professional programmer too (too many years on the roads, more than 20!!!) so I know the real price and time someone will consume on this project. Please be fair.
