As PDF files have become extremely commonplace online, most users will generally download and install the official Adobe Acrobat Reader which is distributed by Adobe. Unfortunately, that program often slows down your system and offers very few features apart from actually being able to view PDF files.
Enter Nuance PDF Reader. This program offers some extra features on top of viewing PDF files. In the realm of viewing PDF files, this application can open PDF documents in full screen, zoom in and out of PDF, can display multiple pages at the same time and copy text from the documents themselves.
Some of the extra features you can expect to encounter with Nuance's PDF reader is emailing PDF files directly from the interface, convert PDF files to MS Word and other formats (DOC, DOCX, XLS and RTF). Unfortunately the conversion of documents is done via Nuance's online service and not by your PC; this of course requires an Internet connection.
Though in the end this program might be handy, the fact that it does its conversion online raises some privacy concerns. It is also not able to edit PDF files.
Nuance PDF Reader can read PDF files and open DOC and DOCX files.Nuance PDF Reader features and highlights:
