WebWorks Reverb has many of the features found in WebWorks Help, and goes one step further by providing high-peformance load times combined with optimal handling of the end-user’s device resolution. This means that users viewing this type of output on a mobile device will be able to view the files in a fast, light-weight manner that is optimal for lower resolutions and/or touch operated screens. Furthermore, users on a more traditional higher-resolution computer monitor will still have the same advantages offered by a complete online help system. In other words, Reverb adapts to the traits of the device that is doing the reading of the content.
WebWorks Reverb also offers a commenting and end-user feedback mechanism using the Disqus commenting and discussion platform. This platform is a leading solution on the Internet for comment handling and has no cost and provides automatic hosting of your end-users comments in a way that is transparent and effective.
Another special capability of using WebWorks Reverb, is that it uses the same search technology found in Google Search. For your end-users, this means they will have all the same features to search your Reverb files as they have for searching the Internet, except that it will be limited to only the Reverb files that you deploy as part of a volume or merged set of volulmes.
If your content is not hosted on the Internet or more specifcally, if it is inaccessible to Google’s search indexing system, then WebWorks Reverb offers two alternatives:
(1) Microsoft IIS Search, or
(2) Client-side Search.
If you are deploying your Reverb output on a Microsoft IIS web server then you can use the Microsoft IIS Search alternative, otherwise you can use the Client-side Search alternative which will work on any web server.
Not only does Reverb leverage Google Search technology, it also provides for easy Google Analytics integration. Using Google Analytics in your web files will be very easy to configure with this format.
If you have end-users that require localized help files, WebWorks Reverb offers a seamless integration with the Google Translate Element. This feature is very powerful and can be used instead of an expensive and burdensome set of translated files and help volumes, which requires a separate set of content for each language that you are supporting. Using WebWorks Reverb, you can now create instanenously localized help volumes without any translation requirements and only one set of help files.
