The web has changed the way we look at documents. Increasingly, content is consumed on devices with wildly differing form factors. The need for content to adapt to diverging screen sizes will only increase as mobile devices displace traditional desktops and laptops. It is a common misconception that PDFs cannot be responsive.
However, an algorithm recently developed by the PDF Association makes great strides for turning well-crafted PDFs into responsive documents. The algorithm, as implemented in ngPDF and powered by iText 7, takes the idea of text reflow in PDF one step further, by automatically turning them into first-class HTML documents without manual intervention.
Join us for a live 30min webinar in which experts from iText and Dual Lab will:
- Guide you through the history of semantic PDF; how we got from Tagged PDF to ngPDF today.
- Take a deep dive into the ngPDF internals, showing how it automatically transforms PDF into responsive HTML.
