Nuance PDF Converter Professional 8 Delivers New Collaboration and Productivity Innovations

Nuance builds on a heritage of PDF innovation with breakthrough new features that deliver on business users’ needs for fully editable, fully collaborative PDF solutions

London, UK., May 23, 2012 – Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN), a leading provider of speech and imaging solutions, today announced the release of Nuance PDF Converter Professional 8. The newest version of the award-winning software increases office productivity through PDF editing and sharing features, that reduce the steps needed to get jobs done. PDF Converter Professional 8 also improves the way users share documents and collaborate with new connections to Web and cloud technologies.

PDF Converter 8 includes innovations such as full-page PDF editing which makes it as easy to edit a PDF as changing a Microsoft Word document. It also features Dragon Dictation, the world famous speech recognition tool that allows users to speak to add sticky notes with text into a PDF document. To aid in document collaboration, this release adds PDF Live, which enables simultaneous editing of the same PDF by multiple users, document and screen sharing, and chat and voice sessions during the editing process.

PDF Converter 8 delivers connectivity to the cloud with the new ability to save and open PDF files in cloud services such as PaperPort Anywhere, Dropbox or Evernote, providing anytime, anywhere access to PDF files.

“PDF Converter Professional 8 represents a giant leap forward for businesses and people working with PDF files. Our solution combines unparalleled editing tools for productivity with exciting new ways to collaborate and share files among users.” said Michael Rich, General Manager and Senior Vice President for Nuance’s Document Imaging Division. “Nuance is focused on helping organisations and individuals work smarter and faster, and PDF Converter Professional 8 makes working with PDFs a much simpler, more streamlined process that saves workers time and saves money for the organisation.”

The PDF Solution That Means Business

PDF Converter Professional 8 delivers PDF editing, speech recognition, live collaboration and cloud storage – all in one. Nuance’s innovations are focused on increased functionality, efficient collaboration and sharing tools, and less effort converting, saving and storing documents in the office.

Key new capabilities include:

Full page PDF Editing – Convert PDF files to completely editable documents in an instant, with virtually all the editing capabilities found in Microsoft Word documents. Any part of a PDF can also be highlighted or annotated.

Dragon speech recognition – For the first time, users can add text notes to PDFs simply by speaking, a new feature that can dramatically increase productivity and enable greater collaboration.

Real-time collaboration – PDF Live is a new feature which allows a document to be simultaneously shared among multiple users and viewed in real-time. PDF Live means editing is fast and interactive, allowing users to watch as edits are made and exchange instant messages with one another.

Cloud connectivity – This release has the most accessibility Nuance has ever offered in PDF software. Documents can be securely saved to cloud services PaperPort Anywhere, Evernote or Dropbox, meaning they can be retrieved virtually anywhere at any time.

Forms enhancement – Don’t let the hassle of filling out long forms slow down business. Users can take a non-fillable form and convert it into a fillable PDF form that can be completed, saved and emailed. They can also build cross-platform PDF forms by adding text fields, checkboxes and radio buttons. New features include data extraction from multiple forms and batch export of data to .csv and .xml files.

More stamping capabilities – Creating stamps on some or all pages in a PDF is fast and simple. Users can easily select an area of a PDF document, click to create the stamp from that area, and then select pages to stamp.
