VirtualViewer HTML5 Accelerates Workflow with Document Comparison

Apr 17, 2018

Quickly find and highlight differences between two pages in side-by-side document compare mode

Waltham, MA (April 17, 2018) – Snowbound Software, the market leader in document viewing technology, today announced the addition of Document Comparison to VirtualViewer®, the firm’s award-winning pure HTML5, web-based document viewer.

The latest version of VirtualViewer® HTML5 (v4.11) allows users to compare two different text documents to each other side-by-side in a split screen and navigate through the highlighted differences.

“The addition of Document Comparison greatly increases the efficiency of our customers,” said Snowbound CEO Simon Wieczner. “It helps improve accuracy when reviewing critical documents by ensuring no change goes unnoticed, all while reducing the time-consuming task of manually comparing documents.”

When utilizing the Document Comparison feature, the user is able to see the differences between the two documents displayed page-by-page in the sidebar, as well as click on a specific difference to scroll directly to where that text is located on the page.

Additional tools within the document compare feature include:

  • The ability to toggle the highlighting of differences within the documents on and off
  • The ability to lock document scrolling so the two documents scroll in tandem
  • The ability to generate an HTML “diff report” of every difference between the two documents

“Whether it’s lawyers ensuring important clauses remain consistent in contracts or an insurance agent tracking the changes in an updated claim, Document Comparison is an extremely valuable tool for knowledge workers across a variety of industries,” said Wieczner.

In addition to Document Comparison, Version 4.11 of VirtualViewer HTML5 introduces improved API calls for OEM use (a new single API method for setting callbacks and a new callback manager), as well as the ability to copy annotations across documents within the viewer.
