veraPDF policy checking

Share

veraPDF-logo-600-300x149The veraPDF software is capable of more than just PDF/A validation. veraPDF also provides a policy checker capable of carrying out custom PDF document checks beyond the scope of PDF/A validation. Examples of custom checks include highlighting the use of particular fonts or image formats, enforcing population of metadata fields or limiting the number of pages in a document. In this webinar we’ll be:

  • Giving a demonstration of the policy checker.
  • Providing a brief, non-technical overview of the supporting technologies: XML Schematron, XPath and XQuery.
  • Helping you to get started with the policy checker, showing how to report issues and get help.

Finally, we will be outlining our future development plans for the policy checker, and we’ll wrap up with a question and answer session.
