Nuance PDF Reader is free document viewing software, which also can be used to convert PDF documents into MS Word, MS Excel, Word DOC or RTF files. The Nuance Reader is compatible with all the major PDF file types. This software not only includes all the common functions of PDF readers like text selection, search and navigation, hand and pointer tools, comments, PDF forms/"fill-in"applications support, etc., but also some unique functions like media file playback and PDF file conversion. The Nuance PDF Reader is easy to install, fast to load and also has a user-friendly interface. The software is relatively small in size and occupies little disk space.
File conversions do not happen instantaneously. It is required first to send the files to Nuance service desks, then users will receive the converted files into their email boxes in a while. The look and feel of the interface is similar to that of Adobe Acrobat, which can be interpreted either as conformity to popular acceptance or lack of uniqueness of the software.
To sum it all up, this freeware is certainly a useful office utility.
- Easy to install and use.
- User-friendly interface
- PDF file conversions are not inbuilt in the software - They can be done through the developer's web site
