Berlin, October 4, 2018 – callas software, a leading provider of automated PDF quality assurance and archiving solutions, today published version 2.0 of callas pdfGoHTML. This free Adobe Acrobat plugin converts tagged PDF files into HTML format. A key feature of this new release is the total redesign of the way that tag structures are visualized. callas pdfGoHTML 2.0 is also significantly more robust when handling PDFs with unusual or very complex tag structures, and it now also fully supports PDF 2.0.
callas pdfGoHTML has been making tagged PDFs more accessible since 2012, converting their content into HTML and then opening these HTML files in the user’s browser. The focus in this context is on an intuitive color-coded representation of the structure of the file content — an ideal complement to the tag tree visualization in Acrobat Pro which can often be difficult to read. As a result, quality control for tagged PDFs becomes a much faster process, and tagging problems can be identified and resolved extremely quickly. callas pdfGoHTML also provides a number of other views to make it easier to assess potential display formats for a tagged PDF, including relaxed reading, higher-contrast, inverted or large-print formats.
"This makes callas pdfGoHTML 2.0 an indispensable companion for all creators of accessible tagged PDFs — particularly those that need to meet the PDF/UA standard", said Dietrich von Seggern, Managing Director at callas software GmbH.
