Accusoft Releases Extended WEB API for Cloud Services Viewer

This article is a company-provided press release and ProgrammableWeb cannot vouch for the accuracy of the statements within. If you have questions regarding the information below, please contact the company that issued the press release.
Accusoft today announces the addition of an extended web API and full website integration capabilities to Accusoft Cloud Services Viewer, an HTML5 viewer that can display virtually any document or image file in the browser on any device.
Now web application developers can integrate a fully customized Accusoft Cloud Services Viewer into their own applications under API control. Until now, this sort of custom integration has only been available in Accusoft’s on-premise viewer, Prizm Content Connect. The cloud-based Accusoft Cloud Services environment hosts Viewer’s back-end engine to give users the benefits of fast, device-agnostic HTML5 viewing and integration without the cost and effort of a server deployment.
Within a web application, Viewer is fully customizable through well-documented APIs. With only a few lines of code and simple parameter settings, developers can easily modify and control Viewer’s appearance and behavior. The API also introduces a text-extraction capability that can be used to render a document into text. Developers can use the extracted text to optimize for search engine indexing (SEO).
The document window itself displays a high-fidelity SVG-format facsimile of the original document, to preserve the original formatting and deliver fast page display while preventing exposure of users' devices to any malware or unwanted metadata associated with the original file.
