Transforming mobile document experiences with Liquid Mode in Adobe Acrobat
Adobe celebrated the 30th anniversary of Acrobat and PDF this year — a digital document format they invented and open-sourced, paving the way for the digital publishing revolution.
Adobe’s proprietary AI is used to power Liquid Mode and instantly reflow text, tables, bullets and headers into a format that fits nicely on a small screen so that readers can review even the most complex documents on-the-go. Liquid Mode makes reading PDFs on a SmartPhone or a tablet possible, eliminating the need for pinch and zoom. Beyond simply reflowing the text, Liquid Mode reading settings allow users to adjust text size, line and character spacing to accommodate their personal reading preferences.
Liquid Mode hit a major milestone this year; Adobe customers used Liquid Mode to read more than a billion files, demonstrating how indispensable this technology has become.
Readability Matters joins TIME in celebrating this invention and the critical role it plays in making digital information easy to understand.
