Readers handed Adobe Systems' Adobe Acrobat Capture 3.0 the award for Best Document Management/Imaging Software, placing the product ahead of this year's second-place winner (and last year's winner), Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003 with Windows SharePoint Services by a comfortable margin of 16 percent. Ease of use and reliability were the descriptions many readers chose to portray their experience with Acrobat Capture.

Acrobat Capture converts scanned paper documents into high-quality HTML or searchable Adobe PDF files that anyone using Adobe's free Adobe Reader program can read. Adobe PDF files are completely searchable, and you can add annotations, cross-document links, and bookmarks to help users with Adobe Acrobat 6.0 software navigate within and between documents. Accurate optical character recognition (OCR) recognizes documents in 165 languages and legal and scientific text. Robust tools let you ready your converted electronic documents for publication on the Web, your intranet and extranet, and CD-ROM. The Acrobat Capture software development kit (SDK) lets you integrate Acrobat Capture into your existing workflow software and email applications.
