The Document Imaging SDK’s latest release now includes new PDF features for developers to Create Searchable PDFs. The new function enables developers to save Tiff documents, faxes, and scanned non-editable PDF documents in searchable PDF format.

Black Ice Software has also implemented this powerful and useful technology in the most recent TIFF Viewer Pro which now includes an essential new feature to save Tiff and scanned non-editable PDF documents in searchable PDF format.

The Document Imaging SDK uses OCR technology to capture the text from the document, create a text overlay on the background image, and turn the documents into searchable PDFs with selectable text.

Many invoicing, medical, and legal applications intentionally create non-editable PDFs to preserve the document integrity. Users of these PDFs cannot select and copy text from these documents like invoice numbers or patient names. With the latest Document Imaging SDK developers can incorporate the ability for users to select text on the PDF and copying text like invoice numbers or patient names easily and seamlessly.

Also included in this release is the the Document Imaging SDK new sample application “Annotation DLL Wrapper C# Sample” with a wrapper DLL to call C++ libraries to help .NET developers reduce development time and simplify development.

The new wrapper DLL files serves as a quick way to import the required functions from their respective C++ libraries as opposed to separately importing each required function from a DLL. Each wrapper DLL houses a single class that stores all its functions for the given DLL.

The Wrapper DLLs source code is available for customers with valid support contracts upon request. Don’t hold valid support? Email to reinstate your Document Imaging SDK support contract to receive the most recent version.
