Experimenting with Text Extraction

Experimenting with Text Extraction

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single useful sample app is the basis of hundreds of variants, as code is copied and tweaked and re-used all over the place.

Since its creation in the early 1990s, the Portable Document Format (PDF) became the standard for the way we share richly formatted documents. One of the biggest strengths of PDF is the guarantee that your file will preserve its visual layout, text, and graphics regardless of where you view it or print it. Adobe created a number of security features which allow you to digitally sign and encrypt a document, which certifies its visual fidelity. With its AES-128 and AES-256 encryption algorithms, the…

Document Strategy Forum: Providing PDF Solutions for Document Management Challenges

Document Strategy Forum: Providing PDF Solutions for Document Management Challenges

Our first-time participation in the Document Strategy Forum is a wrap. It was a great event, and we are very happy we were able to both exhibit and speak at this year’s conference. We enjoyed meeting and interacting with everyone who either stopped by our booth, or who we met after our vendor briefing presentation. In our discussions at the show, we learned more about specific document management challenges that many were facing. Several of our conversations revolved around interest…
