Title: (EN) FEEDBACK VALIDATION OF ELECTRONICALLY GENERATED FORMS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

A method and apparatus for form processing is provided, requiring little to no data entry. Upon receiving an electronic notification containing a form, a validation server extracts an electronic contact address from the electronic notification. The validation server then applies a template associated with the sender's electronic contact address to an OCRed document to extract information necessary to generate an electronic form comprising machine parsable data. The sender is then granted access and prompted to validate the electronic form. The sender entity validates the electronic form by making any necessary changes or revisions and by submitting the editable web form. The form's parsable content is then stored directly as data in a database. In some embodiments, the validation server may accept the electronic validation with additional revision information. In these embodiments, the revision information may be applied to future forms received from the sender. Optionally, the revision information may also be used to create a new version of the template specifically associated with the sender's electronic contact address.
