Dynamsoft extends its document capture capabilities to support remote work during COVID-19

Dynamsoft is updating its document capture and management software development kit to allow desktop capabilities to work remotely on mobile browsers.

This includes full document loading, image capture, editing, and saving functions for enhanced mobile workflows and productivity.

Starting with version 16 of the Dynamic Web TWAIN software development kit (SDK), users can capture documents from within a browser on an Android or iPhone smartphone, or for iPad.

This includes now being able to conveniently digitize a document to the PDF format using a camera smartphone.

At the heart of this is a new image viewer. It provides a unified document capture and management experience across Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS. Desktop viewer capabilities are extended to mobile browsers that include Chrome 76+ and Firefox 68+ on Android, and Safari 13.1+ and Chrome 76+ on iOS.

Several other updates were made under the hood to accommodate desktop features to be unified to mobile platforms.

Dynamic Web TWAIN provides cross-browser and cross-platform document scanning support for web applications.

Developers need only write a handful of lines of JavaScript code to enable document scanning, uploading, editing, and processing across Android, iOS, Linux, macOS or Windows devices.

Users can scan documents from TWAIN, SANE and ICA-compatible scanners using a variety of browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer (IE), or Safari.

Users can also edit captured documents and save the images in various file formats such as JPEG, TIFF, PDF, and more. These files can be transferred and stored across varying protocols, local or remote file systems, databases, and document repositories.

In addition, there are several add-ons available. A barcode scanner SDK provides enterprise-grade support for the most common 1D and 2D barcode symbols.

An optical character recognition (OCR) library enables extracting text trapped within images for editing. And a PDF rasterizer lets users conveniently view and convert PDF files into common image file formats.
