A client requires an annual report to be viewed online, as a publication. Can anyone reconmend a PDF viewer that does not require any external downloads/plugins.

I was initially looking to avoid Flash for the obvious accessibility issues but I can't find anything good tat isnt flash related so it looks likely that I will go down that route.

I've looked into Scribd and Flash Paper, I'd like something that can display a menu rather than just zoom and scroll capabilities.

Has anyone used something they are happy to recommend?

You do need to have a PDF reader installed on your computer whether it is a form of an application or an activex plugin for the web browser...

Oh...  I see...  But Scribd actually do conversion process in the backend to convert the PDF to their format... and I don't remember seeing anything that shows you PDF document without the ActiveX control...

yeah, I was hoping that there would be some products out there similar to scribd that I can purchase and use on my site to view PDF publications.

I've now resigned myself to accepting that there are going to be plugin requirements but there still isnt a stand alone product out there similiar to ipaper...

I could sign up to scribd and embed that in my site but I'd prefer something more branded that I could tinker with if I chose to.

anyway, if anyone has used soemthing like this then I'd appreciate the linkage.

It'd be nice if you could share what you have found out and close this topic if you resolved the problem...  ;)

the above is one of many flash based viewers, that offer multiple ways to view and navigate a PDF file.

Although not ideal its something that I'll look into using for publishing my PDF's online. It allows page saves, bookmarks, has print capabilities and If your flash savvy should be pretty robust in terms of customizing certain areas.
