What is Microsoft Reader?


Microsoft® Reader is a software application designed to deliver an on-screen computer reading experience that for the first time approaches the convenience and quality of paper.

Microsoft Reader is the first product to include ClearType™ display technology. ClearType greatly improves resolution on LCD screens to deliver a print-like display. Microsoft Reader also pays strict attention to the traditions and benefits of good typography. It offers a clean, uncluttered layout; ample margins; proper spacing, leading and kerning; plus powerful tools for book marking, highlighting and annotation.

What are the advantages of using Microsoft Reader?

Electronic reading software offers benefits of portability, storage and additional electronic features such as Search and instant word Lookup. Microsoft Reader for PCs and laptops can hold as many books as your hard drive will store – possibly thousands! If you travel, imagine having access to all of your reading material through your laptop, saving space and reducing the weight that you have to carry.

Microsoft Reader allows you to do many of the same things you do when you read a printed book, such as add Bookmarks and make notes in the margins. You can then review all of your margin notes (as well as Bookmarks, Drawings, and Highlights) in one place. Reader also allows you to easily do things you can’t do in a printed book, such as Search for a word or instantly Lookup the definition of a word.

Finally, Microsoft Reader is the only reading software available that includes ClearType display technology, which makes the words on the screen appear almost as crisp as the words on a printed page.
