Editor's review

This is software that will let you extract text from printable documents and you are able to embed it into your own applications where you need such functionality.

The product offered is an development kit that installs a virtual printer driver. When a printable document is directed to this printer the software tool extracts the text within it and makes it available to you. You could apply some formatting as well as encoding such as ANSI or Unicode, if you like, and save the content in one of several formats. These include the plain text, of course, but additionally include formatted text, XML, RSS for future processing. You would be able to access other documents, from your application, via the COM interface. Once the content has been extracted, you can browse through the document page by page. The extracted text can be saved on a disk or the clipboard. Uploading to a FTP or HTTP server, printing the content to a real printer. You could send the text by email too.

Periodic auto save can be turned on and you can specify a set of strings to the file path name string, so that required details could be added to the filenames automatically, without you having to tackle the auto save dialog every time. You would need to add {{DATE}}, {{TIME}}, {{SYSFOLDER}}, {{IDENTITY}}, {{PAGE}} or {{JOB}} to the file name or path. The current date, time, system folder, some unique number, page number and print job id respectively will get tagged on automatically. The SDK will be given out free but if you redistribute the "printer" as part of your product then there is a royalty to be paid. If you are into developing applications that need content to be extracted from printable documents, this can take care of the implementation including a customized user interface.

Publisher's description

Miraplacid Text Driver SDK generates virtual printer driver with all the functionality you find in Miraplacid Text Driver Terminal Server Edition. You can customize it and embed into your software. With the driver generated with Miraplacid Text Driver SDK TE, you can save the extracted information as plain, formatted text or as XML or RSS for future processing in all installed codepages and Unicode.
After installation on your PC, driver generated with the SDK appears as a new virtual printer in your system. All the documents you print to this "printer" will be accessible from you software via COM interface. You can browse through the document page to page, get and modify extracted text. Then you can save results to disk or Clipboard, upload to FTP or HTTP server, print them to a real printer or send by email.
Turn "Auto Save" on if you want the driver to send extracted text to the chosen destinations without waiting for your input. If you want every document to be saved to an individual file, add {{DATE}}, {{TIME}}, {{SYSFOLDER}}, {{IDENTITY}}, {{PAGE}} or {{JOB}} to the file name or path. They will be replaced with current date, time, system folder, some unique number, page number and print job id respectively.
SDK is free, but you will need a license to use or redistribute the printer driver it generates.
