In particular, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Rich Text Format, HTML, PDF/A, searchable PDF, CSV and txt (plain text) files. Starting with version 11 files can be saved in the djvu format. Version 14 supports recognition of text in 192 languages and has a built-in spell check for 48 of them. [1]
