Searchable PDF

createsearchablelayer 1Find Faxes Faster with Native Searchable PDFs

OpenText RightFax 10.6 offers a new file format called "Searchable PDF" which as its name implies creates a searchable portable document file (PDF) after applying an OCR procedure on the captured fax. Once optically recognized, indexed and stored, the fax is able to be searched more accurately.

Once recognized the faxes can be sent to an email gateway (e.g., SMTP, Exchange or Lotus), a network folder (where it can be searched), or directly to the RightFax XML Generator for integration into other Content Management Systems, or any applications that can ingest XML data, including numerous multi-function products (MFPs).
