How to convert text html and without losing a single data

Hello Dean,

In which format do you want to convert the html data? If you want to convert into .txt or .doc format then it is very simple. You will just need to do the following:

  • First you need to have Dreamweaver installed on your computer.
  • Copy and paste the html file that you want to convert into Dreamweaver, but first make sure that you have set Dreamweaver to code view.
  • After switch to design view and you will be able to view the text without tags and other formatting options.
  • You can therefore copy the text and then paste it in a notepad or word document and then save it.

Regards,

Carl

You don’t actually need a converter if you only want to get all the texts from an HTML page. You can copy the text from a webpage and paste it into a document or text editor like Microsoft Office Word or Microsoft Notepad. Save it then as a Microsoft Office Word document or as a text file in Notepad. The problem comes in if the page you want to fetch the texts from is copyrighted.

If the page is copyrighted, you cannot copy any texts on the page. You will also not be able to highlight any text. Or, if you can highlight a text, the copy command is not available. A copyrighted material or content on the internet is the sole property of the respective website and should not be copied by any users.

In case you encountered a copyrighted webpage on the internet and you really want to copy the contents, you can convert the entire page into an image and then scan the image using OCR to extract all the texts. To perfectly convert the webpage into an image, download and install Maxthon for Windows. Once installed, open the copyrighted page in Maxthon. After that, press CTRL + F2 to take a snapshot of the entire webpage and then save it.

Next, download and install Abbyy FineReader. Scan the image with Abbyy FineReader using OCR and save it as a text file.
