how to format text from the web browser and then save it memory so narrator software can read it


  • hi, i have a couple of questions on how i might go about formatting text from the web browser function in basically i want to be able to format the text from the webpage into something readable for a text to speech program. this means taking out unnecessary spaces so its just one fluid lot of text. ive had some succes but im unble to take out unnecessary spaces and so once my narrator gets to more than one space it stops for some reason. im also currently saving what is in the browser to a text file on the hard drive and i would like to know if you can just save it to the memory instead so that the user doesnt have to save the file before it can read the current page.


    currently i have this, that converts the wb browser content and saves it:


    Private Sub ToolStripButton10_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ToolStripButton10.Click


    Dim ConvertCom As Object

    Dim sResult As String

    ConvertCom = CreateObject("czdoc2txt.ConvertApplication")

    sResult = ConvertCom.ConvertFolder("c:\test.htm", "c:\", "3", False, "")

    If sResult = "" Then

    'MsgBox("Convert OK!")


    MsgBox("Convert Failure, error reason is" & sResult)

    End If

    ConvertCom = Nothing

    End Sub


    anyone help with any ideas?
