SILVERCODERS DocToText is a powerful utility which can convert documents in many formats to plain text. It includes a console application and C/C++ library, which allows embedding text extraction mechanisms into other applications. It supports MS Office binary formats (MS Word (DOC), MS Excel (XLS, XLSB), MS PowerPoint (PPT), and Rich Text Format (RTF)), OpenDocument formats (text documents (ODT), spreadsheets (ODS), presentations (ODP) and graphics (ODG)), Office Open XML formats (MS Word (DOCX), MS Excel (XLSX), and MS PowerPoint (PPTX)), iWork formats (PAGES, NUMBERS, KEYNOTE), OpenDocument Flat XML formats (FODP, FODS, FODT), Portable Document Format (PDF), Email files (EML), and HyperText Markup Language (HTML). DocToText can extract text not only from the document body but also from annotations (comments) embedded in odt, doc, docx, or rtf files and read metadata like author, last modification date, or number of pages. It can be used as a fast console viewer, and is able to convert corrupted OpenDocument and Office Open XML documents. It can be used to recover text even if other recovery methods failed.
