Envisioning the Next-Gen Document Reader
Posted: February 18, 2023
People read digital documents on a daily basis to share, exchange, and understand information in electronic settings.

We describe 18 NLP-powered features to add to existing document readers and propose a novel plug-in marketplace that allows users to further customize their reading experience, as demonstrated through 3 exploratory UI prototypes available at this https URL.
