Hi,

When using iSpring Pro, is it possible to extract the text on slides and text in notes to a text file?

My intention is to apply search facilities on the extracted text, by using a fast text search engine, and to feed it to the web crawlers by using a site map.

Regards,

iSpring doesn't offer you such an option, however, you can do it using other 3rd party tools. Here is an article on this topic:

In the data folder of a presentation I converted, I see a file named presentation.xml and it seems this XML contains the text of the slides between the <text> and <\text> tags. It also seems the titles of the slides are in the <slide index sections.

I intend to extract the titles and text as descibed in the article:

presentation.xml is just a scheme of your presentation that includes slides and other resources. It has slide names in text tag, like:
<text>Video test slide</text>
As I tested it doesn't contain other text on slides or slide notes.

You can try out iSpring SDK and fetch slide information using API:
