Examples of using Jaws Document SDK

Jaws is used by developers to create modern document solutions that add value and dramatically reduce development costs. Jaws is powerful and flexible as a development platform and can be customized and branded to fit in with your application.

Jaws is deployed on millions of computers world-wide (including East Asian countries) and with flexible licensing options you’re bound to find a commercial model with which you are comfortable.

Here’s some examples of how Jaws can be deployed.  Contact us for more detail.

Printer Driver in Windows

Developers can create PDF drivers based on XPS to use in their applications.  PDFs created using Jaws are faster, smaller and higher quality than competitive technologies.  Developer features include:

  • Simple “inf” file install for pre-installing on devices.
  • Change printer settings and drive the printer programmatically.
  • Extensible architecture allows additional filters to be added.
  • Supports desktop, server and virtual deployment options

Features you can deploy for users include:

  • Lock down the settings your users can access.
  • Secure documents and set permissions.
  • Append Pages from one PDF file into another PDF file.
  • Start an application after printing.
  • Full control over the output folder.
  • Email documents as attachments.
  • Multi-language support.
  • Setups - create specific printer preferences for specific uses.
  • PDF Standards: PDF/A and PDF/X compliance.


  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2012, Windows Driver Kit 7


  • Desktop - Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 – all with the latest service pack
  • Server – Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and above, latest service pack

Cloud-based document viewer

This example shows you how to build an HTML5 based PDF viewer using Jaws Core. The example allows the user to log into their OneDrive account and select a PDF. Once selected the PDF page content is converted to SVG using the Jaws TrueView technology and displayed inside an HTML5 container. The SVG content is high quality vector based page representation and can be smoothly zoomed and panned keeping pin sharp clarity. All of the text from the PDF is retained in the SVG and can be searched and selected by the capabilities found in the web browser.  Using the annotation support in Jaws the pages can be annotated and those annotations can be written back to the PDF.
