Jaws PDF Creator
Jaws PDF Creator on
Jaws PDF Creator converts PostScript language files into PDF files (Portable
Document Format). These files can subsequently be used with PDF viewing
and editing applications such as Jaws PDF Editor™ and Adobe
products, plus any other third-party PDF tools. The PDF files produced by
PDF Creator are fully compliant with the PDF 1.3 and 1.4 specifications pub-
lished by Adobe.
PDF Creator has two modes of operation:
The application is embedded into the printing system of your com-
puter’s operating system (OS) so that it appears as a PostScript compati-
ble printer to applications running on that computer. You can produce a
PDF file from any document by printing the document to the Jaws PDF
Creator printer, in the same way that you would produce hard-copy by
printing to a real printer.
When creating PDF files, the printing system produces an intermediate
PostScript language form of your document, which PDF Creator imme-
diately converts to PDF and writes to disk.
Jaws PDF Creator on Macintosh platforms
Jaws PDF Creator
Edition 3: July 2003
Jaws PDF Creator works with PostScript printer drivers from Apple and
Because PDF Creator is integrated into the printing system, it has no
user interface of its own. However, it does have a Control Panel (known
as the Config Editor on Mac OS X platforms) which allows you to config-
ure various parameters affecting the final PDF output.
A standalone version of Jaws PDF Creator, called Jaws ToPDF takes an
existing PostScript language file—either a legacy file or a file produced
on another computer—and converts it to PDF.
