There are document viewers out there. Scribd have one, Google too. Scribd and Google doc viewers are great, but they’re one-size-fits-all, appealing to people who want to read Jamie Oliver recipes or the latest Harry Potter. We wanted a doc viewer that does what we - and you - want it to do. So what can our viewer do now?
Each document (Word to PDF to PPT to Excel and beyond) gets put in the library for everyone to see as well as in your own bookshelf for you to manage. Clicking on the thumbnail, it opens in the viewer. You can scroll around, zoom in and out, add comments. It’s a little basic – for now – but we will be refining it constantly, with one caveat: we want you to tell us what you want it to do (not something Google would probably ask). Meantime, coming soon to somewhere near you, will be a document viewer which offers:
- Full screen mode so you can sit back, sip your tea, and get the full picture
- The ability to search within the text and highlight keywords to make research easier
- The ability to forward a good find to a grateful friend
- The ability to embed (like a YouTube video) your doc in our doc viewer on your site, blog, intranet
So sign in and give it a try.
