Adobe Systems Inc reckons it has the answer to getting paper- based documents on-line and integrated with Web-based information systems, with the release of Adobe Acrobat Capture 2.0 software for Microsoft Corp Windows95 and NT. The software is based on the PDF Portable Document Format, which enables documents converted into electronic format to be used across multiple systems, searched, and viewed from most widely-used Web browsers. The documents can be easily re-published across networks, the Internet, to CD-ROM or back into paper format as required. Adobe Acrobat Capture 2.0 includes an application programming interface that enables users or third party developers to build their own systems for converting paper documents and distributing them on the Web. The new release includes enhanced page recognition, including support for both black and white, greyscale and color documents, which increases the ability to search on highly formatted documents such as tables and forms. Acrobat Capture Reviewer offers tools for the customer to enhance and alter converted documents and review pages before they are distributed. The product captures documents in eight languages, US and UK English, German, French, Swedish, Dutch, Spanish and Italian, and offers out-of-the-box support for most widely-used scanners. As well as outputting Portable Document Format, the software also enables output to HTML, ASCII, Rich Text Format, Microsoft Word 6 and Wordperfect 7 for Windows. The product is due to be available in May for around 480 pounds, which includes the ability to convert up to 20,000 pages. Additional page packs will be available. Users of Adobe Acrobat Capture 1.0 or 1.01 will be able to upgrade to version 2.0 for 90 pounds.
