Portable Document Format (PDF) is an open standard for document exchange. This file format created by Adobe Systems in 1993 is used for representing documents in a manner independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems. Each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a fixed-layout flat document, including the text, fonts, graphics, and other information needed to display it. - From Wikipedia.

There are basically three main types of PDF files viz 

PDF Image Only Format Like any other image format, this format is just an image of the source document. Such PDF files are as good as the source documents but the text is not searchable. We in PDF India can give face lift to these images to make them look better than the original. (Please refer the product “image enhancement” in this catalogue elsewhere). This format is cheap and takes less time to produce. Many scanners allow scanning directly to PDF Image format instead of standard Tiff format. If the files are already in any other image format, the same can be converted to PDF image format quickly. Many tools are available to carry out this conversion. PDF Image only format files are generally smaller than tiff files. A typical 300dpi monochrome file of A4 size will be around 60kb in size. This format is mainly used for document storage and archiving. 

PDF Image + Hidden Text (Searchable) As the name suggests this format has image of the original document on the top of invisible searchable text layer. As such the text is hidden but does not have the formatting attributes such as bold, italics, font type and font size. In PDF India we take care to see that the hidden text is highly accurate rendering the PDF file fully searchable and selectable. The specialty of this format is that original look and feel of the document is retained and at the same time the file is fully searchable. When you search and find a word or a phrase in such a file, the same will be highlighted on the image. The main drawback of this format is it’s file size. It is the most size inefficient PDF format hence not preferred for web publishing. PDF India has developed technique to make handwritten/cursive documents searchable in PDF Image + Hidden Text format This is the most cost effective PDF format Typically this format is recommended for cases requiring maximum fidelity to the original image. As such this format is used where look and feel of the original document is very important at the same time limited searchability is required. There is no hard and fast rule. One has to strike a trade-off between cost and utilty. A few examples are... Documents with handwritten text Financial documents Research reports and Journals 

PDF Normal (Searchable) This is the most efficient PDF file format as it is an exact replica of the original document, text is fully searchable, and file size typically between 6-10kb for A4 size monochrome source. This is the most preferred PDF file format for web publishing as well as transmission via email. PDF Normal files by definition are reproduction of the original documents hence need high level of texual accuracy, precise positioning of images and graphics on the canvas, font types and font sizes properly judged and selected. This makes it the most difficult format to handle. PDF India has developed the skills to handle this format. We take care to see that the fonts type and font size are near perfect match to the original and the layout is exact mirror image of the original. This format is good for bookmarking, linking, searching, printing etc. Usage of this PDF format is typically found in Product catalogues Brochures for web publishing E publishing Technical literature Fast loading web page

Accessible Talking PDF files:


Converting PDF files to Section 508 compliant Accessible Talking PDF files

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, (amended in 1998 and codified in 29 USC § 794d) is a federal law requiring electronic technology used by the government to be accessible. Specific requirements are maintained by the Access Board in the Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards (36 CFR 1194). Some 508 Standards - Provide a text equivalent for every non-text element. - All information conveyed with color should be available without color. - Row and column headers should be provided in data tables. 

5 years back PDF India was invited by a large European Energy Corporation to undertake conversion of their PDF files to Accessible PDF files on an ongoing basis so that all PDF files on their website are Section 508 compliant Accessible files. Till date we continue to work with this corporation and provide this service. While carrying out this conversion we always imagine a visually impaired person wanting to "read" our PDF files. So all our efforts are to see that our PDF files are "talking PDF" files for the visually impaired person. This is a tough job which at times gets very complicated so much so that we recreate the PDF file to begin with. While converting PDF files to Accessible PDF files each day bring us a new problem to crack. Our technical team analyze such problems as they come, solve them and in the process learn a new aspect of this conversion process and tools associated with it.

PDF To HTML Conversion:


Our very first large assignment was from USA to convert drug inserts (most with very small font size) to PDF and then to HTML both for web publishing. We handled this prestigious assignment for a Online Drug Database Pioneer Pharmacist. Our association with this Drug Database portal lasted for over 6 years. We handled over 1000 drug inserts which were subsequenty published on this portal. This was in 1998 thru 2003. We used to scan the inserts, convert them to PDF Normal and then to HTML. Our process that time was a hybrid process viz usage of third party software, Microsoft tools and about 2-3% of basic coding. Times have changed. Probably there are advanced tools to convert PDF to HTML on click of a mouse.
