“ProofText provides up to 50% faster total inspection time than comparable systems on the market due to the highly automated text matching process, best-in-class usability and an efficient evaluation,” says Dominique Elsen, EyeC product manager. “The core functionality of ProofText is comparing manuscripts to initial artwork documents like PDF or others to find and evaluate differences.”
ProofText’s intuitive usability, intelligent algorithm and user interface have been paired with easy-to-use tools, which allow any user to inspect and evaluate complex documents and artwork in an efficient way at any place, without extensive training. The quick check prevents gross errors in advance and avoids upcoming costs.
ProofText has been developed especially for text-heavy and multilingual artwork on products such as folding boxes, labels, leaflets, booklets, and flexible packaging. To ensure quality right from the artwork creation phase, live text (Unicode) from manuscript and briefing files (Word, HTML, QRD templates, and more) is compared with the initial artwork file or proof (PDF). The artwork revision control cycle is reduced by comparing live text of a PDF vs. PDF with different revisions.
Text content checked by ProofText includes differences caused by deleted, inserted or changed text, as well as deviations in text styles (bold, italic, size, and font type). Multiple pages, documents, file formats, and languages can be checked simultaneously in one pass.
