Content Extraction

Extract and analyse file text and metadata with the Document Filters SDK

Document Filters leverages unique deep inspection technology to extract and analyse all of the text and metadata — including hidden content — in a file. With Document Filters, software developers can enable their applications to extract and process content from hundreds of file formats without the need for the source application.
