Reader Extensions & Form Processing
Collecting form data can be challenging, especially when processing large quantities of documents. We’re offering a solution to this problem; Adobe Experience Reader Extensions (AERE). AERE is a web-based service that applies Reader Enablement to the PDF forms documents that you send us. Reader Enablement sets up a PDF document so that a user can edit that document in the free Adobe Reader tool. This tool allows users to add comments, digital signatures, barcodes and more in the Adobe Reader app.
Fillable Forms & Barcodes
Adobe Reader has barcode and form processing capabilities, but these features are not accessible to users. Adobe Experience Reader Extensions allow authors/creators of PDFs to unlock these features. Form data capture, data export, barcode generation, and more allow you to automate form data collection within Adobe Reader. Without usage rights activated, these features cannot be enabled or accessed.
Built from Adobe Technology
Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extensions is a module within the LiveCycle Java stack. A user would need to use LiveCycle Reader Extensions to enable features on a per-document basis. Adobe Experience Reader Extensions is built off the same core technology used to create LiveCycle Reader Extensions. AERE uses a command-line interface, however, and is built to be used programmatically. AERE is an affordable standalone solution that does not require a Java stack.
AERE allows you to configure a PDF document just as you would if you were using the Adobe LiveCycle software. After you use AERE to apply Reader Enablement to a PDF form, you can achieve the following:
Get the most out of your form data and simplify your workflow with these benefits.
