    What are annotations? Annotations are objects that are graphically displayed on the document. Annotations add additional information to the document or emphasizes or redacts a specific part of the document.

    For example: Comment annotations can be added to the document, to make a comment on a page, or on a specific paragraph on the page, while redact annotations can be used to redact sensitive information, specific text or paragraphs from a document.

    The IceViewer Includes the following annotations: Text, Comment, Note, Highlight, Redact, Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle, Ellipse, Line, Arrow, Stamp, Rubber Stamp, Timestamp and Signature.

    Optical Character Recognition (OCR)

    Optical character recognition or OCR is a common method of digitizing printed texts, documents, sales receipts, mail or any scanned documents so that they can be electronically searched, edited, stored more compactly and displayed online.

    IceViewer provides the possibility to transform scanned documents into editable and searchable text files, which can be conveniently viewed and shared via electronic means.
