Introduction To Desktop Reading Tools:
When the new age of eBook reading came about, you could see publishers getting happy. After all, they could sell their work now in digital form and make money out of it. They saw this as a great opportunity, a cost saving measure, to bring out books easily. Thus, they could now pick up hosting sites, which soon brought books to be held for sale. You could just buy and get the book instantly. You just have to buy the book, and the book appears in your device, smartphone or account easily. Everyone was happy with the possibilities which were there for the eBooks. This is where the concept of eBook reading tools came into light. Within these tools, you could see some being applicable for only smartphones, some just the application. However, within all this, there was Azardi which the changed the game.
Azardi ePub3 Reader – An Overview:
The first thing we need to know about this ePub reader is its applicability. As it were, Azardi is something you can use only on Windows desktop. This is to mean that you may not find Azardi reader to be applicable for other platforms. Of course, you have the native Google Android application for it and other measures, but nothing comes close. You can always see that Azardi works excellent when you use it on Desktop environment. Needless to say, you can’t make it a point to use the tool in smartphones, Mac systems, Linux OS or anything else. Even if you do, you will only be using half the features of the Azardi ePub3 reader. There is always something missing, and it seems a bit different. At the end of the day, you always need a reader which you can carry around.
Desktop Only App And Its Feature:
- With its only range extending up to the desktop system. Many would term it as a restrictive measure, but that is not the case. On the opposite side of the coin, you can safely say that being desktop only is its strength.
- Azardi supports all desktop text formats, and more importantly ePub or ePub3 formats. Although you can see that there are many other eBook readers like Aldiko, Sigil, Calibre, Mantano or even Kindle which natively support ePub3, Azardi stands differently.
- Of course, as this tool is something which is specially designed for Desktop, the whole interface is intuitive. You will see that Desktop version is plain and simple to operate upon.
Azardi ePub Reader Features:
When we look at the way Azardi epub3 tool works, you will see the difference from others. Of course, as with many eBook readers, you can find a range of features which make reading eBooks highly engaging. The following are some of its features which help you get along with easily reading your eBooks:
Full EPUB 3 Support:
- As with most eBook readers like Mantano or BlureFire readers, you get the native support for the reflowable text. You can read your ebook in the way you like with the reflowable texts. To explain briefly, you will get support for different screen sizes, which will help you never lose out. The fixed layout allows you to readjust the width and height of the text, according to the way you are a device. Since this ebook reader is something only applicable to the desktop system, you can get it to adapt your text to various screen sizes.
Full-Text Index Search:
Any eBook reader worth its salt has this standard feature within them. Yes, we are referring to the ability to have books arranged according to the metadata present in the books. Some readers, like Moon+ reader, Helicon or some other, have a default setting for the arrangement. Of course, this is mainly according to Author attributes, Year of Release and Category. Most of these readers, scan for the information of the books online in sites like Amazon, Scribd, etc. and load up the books. Of course, you can always edit the tags related to the books and get to rearranging the books. All to say that, you have a very similar feature in Azardi ePub3 reader.
In addition to grouping books across different categories and genres, you also get an extra feature in this eBook reader. This feature, which comes as a part of Bookshelf management of the eBook reader, is Cross reference. What we mean is that you can, search from within one book about a whole different one. And the eBook app gets around and shows you the keyword search. This way you don’t have to scratch your head about a word, or a phrase which you think you may have read earlier. You search the way you want, without leaving that book you were reading.
BookMarks, Syncing Options In Azardi Desktop Reader:
- What happens when you lose out power when you are in the middle of reading? Or worse even the computer or system hangs up. Or for any other matter which stops your reading unexpectedly. Therefore, you lose out on your reading for a million different reasons. Then you may have to open the software application, and load up your book, and search for the last read point. Usually, that’s a tedious task, if you are doing it in eBook. The most simple answer to this is Bookmark feature.
- Again not a new feature ever, but still a worthy mention in the Azardi reader is Bookmarking. This feature, activated by a double space (or any key combination that you assign the software), drops a pin on the page. When you see that the virtual pin hovers, you have bookmarked a single page. However, what happens when the system failure happens unexpectedly. Don’t you worry, as you have an automatic bookmarking which starts where you left at?
- Of course, a situation may arise where you may have to leave your system and go some place else. Mostly happen with students using public libraries. Now, in those cases, you may have to log out of the system and lose out on the reading. To avoid this, Azardi asks you to create an account (or login) which records your preferences on the cloud, in every moment. This means that most of the book information is loaded up in the drive. Now, you don’t have to worry about where you stopped. This is put in the cloud, and the information comes back to the user when he logs into the account on a different device and under the same account. There are other uses of the continuous sync of features and user data in a cloud. These, we will have a look in below discussion.
Preserving Visual Settings In Azardi eBook Reader:
With the cloud syncing features becoming a norm today, we have apps to take full advantage of the same. Naturally, every app in the market wants to utilize the power of cloud computing and get its data preserved. Most of this is done through creating an account which allows for your profile to be filed in the application. This is truer in the case of the desktop application which takes to saving your data in the local disks. More often than not, you can see that information is getting saved in the default Books folders in My Documents tree. Or the next best location for apps to store their data is the Programs folder in the local OS disk partition.
This brings us to the next feature of the eBook reader for a desktop. The feature in question is Preserving Visual settings. Thus, the app gets you to register an account, by itself creates a folder, and starts syncing you settings to it. Of course, while we are at it, not only is the data regarding bookshelves, books, categories are stored, but also more. We get to save the way we want to look, read and feel about the app. Thus, The visual aspects are more often than not, display sizes, font sizes and types, an arrangement of books and colors and themes. All these and more saved. You get back all your features as soon as you load up the software application.
Text Reading Features Which Make Your Reading Better:
The range of features which you usually get in different tools is also available and improved into this tool. Azardi is a software tool which allows you to change the font size to unlimited levels. With these fonts change available, you will have no problem at all while reading longer texts. This is where your accessibility issues come into play. You may increase the font to the maximum and activate the speech to text feature, which helps older people to read quickly. In addition to this, you will find that the software tool has native support for almost all types of fonts.
With fonts adjustment, you also need to watch for ease of readability. It doesn’t make sense if you blindly increase the fonts, and the reading goes down. The overall page setup needs to be adjusted as well. The Azardi ePub3 reader does that easily enough. Now, you don’t have to worry about how the book will look while you read it. The software program will readjust and get to the part of making your reading all the more enjoyable. In addition to these, you also have a way of looking at Footnotes on a consistent basis. You never miss out on any relevant definitions, explanations or such made on the Footnotes.

This we already know, as the reader claims to be a core ePub reader from the start. However, in addition to this you can open files with the extensions like HTML5, XHTML, XHTML5. Also, you get all the extensive CSS3 support you need from an eBook reader.
What makes the Azardi reader go beyond the usual rat race, is it’s internal ability to support 38 languages. This perhaps is a great feature, as not many readers boast of this facility.

In terms of font support, you get WOFF fonts, and OTF with TTF file support. What this means is that you can get any fonts to load up on the reader. This is important because, you do not have to depend on system font tree, to read books which aren’t supported.
