What is DjVu – digital files format, which was developed for saving and reading scanned documents, full of math formulas, graphic schemas, drawings and handwritten symbols.
One more feature of DjVu files type is the possibility of creating interactive table of content, allowing you to quickly navigate through the books.
WinDjView reader – freeware program for opening and viewing DjVu files, based on an open source library DjVuLibre, compatible with most common Windows versions – Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. On my opinion, WinDjView is one of the best freeware programs for opening DjVu files.
That’s how it looks:
Key features of WinDjView:
- Comfortable tabs for all currently opened documents
- User based bookmarks and reviews
- Search and copying possibilities, dictionary based spellcheck. Note: Available only in documents with text layers
- Navigation area
- Table of content based on hyperlinks
- Wide set of configurable printing options
- Converting and exporting options (bmp, jpeg, png, tif)
- Configurable brightness, contrast and gamma
- Display options – Color, Black and White, Bring to front and so on
- Mouse and keyboard navigation
- Associates with all DjVu files on your PC
P.S. Of course, you can search for a better program for DjVu files by yourself, rear a lot of forums, reviews and spend a lot of your time, but let me warn you, anyway – you will admit that WinDjVu Reader is the best one.
