Document Express Professional is a versatile document conversion tool that transforms your paper documents into searchable DjVu files. This Professional version has been designed for low-volume conversion needs, and it is available in two versions - Asian and non-Asian OCR for double- and single-byte languages, respectively.

The DjVu document file format is gaining more and more visibility due to the increasing demand for a low-weight, high-resolution document format. Though PDF is still the reference when it comes to storing and distributing documents over the Internet, DjVu’s capability of storing high-quality images in tiny containers has proved to be a powerful contender. Regrettably, not many applications and operating systems offer the same support for DjVu files as they do with PDF, JPEG, TIFF, or PNG (to name but a few). Fortunately, however, free plug-ins have been made available to overcome these limitations. Document Express clearly believes that DjVu is the best option when it comes to storing and distributing high-quality content through the Internet or via recordable discs.

The program offers a simple and intuitive interface, which can either load an existing PDF file or scan and process any paper document. Its OCR engine generally produces good quality result that is always a subject to the quality and clarity of the source document. The text can be highlighted and annotated, while documents can be bookmarked and hyperlinked easily and efficiently. The result is a fully-searchable text-based file that retains most of the layout features present in the original document, while keeping the size of the final DjVu file well below the weight of its PDF counterpart.
