How to read an emz file

An EMZ file is a compressed file usually containing some type of graphic data. The EMZ format is most commonly used in Microsoft applications like Word, PowerPoint and Visio. The compression utility used to compress the file is GZip, which compresses the file and appends the .emz extension onto the end of the file. Gzip is a command line utility which is difficult to use, and limited in functionality, but does provide a high compression ratio. EMZ files can be tricky to read because of the limitations of Gzip. However, there are two methods which can be used to read EMZ files.
