Text2Go Tip – Look for the Printer Friendly icon

November 25, 2007 at 9:46 pm | Posted in text to speech, Text2Go | 3 Comments

Many articles on the web are plastered with ads and split over multiple pages so the pages will load quickly can contain more ads. This makes capturing the complete text of an article somewhat tedious. You need to select the text on each page, use the ‘Add Text’ command and then navigate to the next page and repeat.

However many websites provide a printer friendly version of their articles.  To find them, you need to look for a ‘Printer Friendly’, ‘Print’, ‘Print this Story’, etc icon/link.

Use the Printer Friendly icon when converting text to speech

The printer friendly version is displayed as a single page and doesn’t contain ads. This allows you to select the text as a single block and use the ‘Text2Go’ command. Another benefit of these pages is that they load very quickly because they don’t contain ads and unnessary graphics.

I just wish all websites provided printer friendly pages.

  1. Couldn’t agree more. I don’t know if there is one, but some type of standardization for printable/printer-friendly pages would definitely be useful. It is frustrating trying to search for the icon(s).

  2. Yeah, it’s really printer friendly, thanks a lot, I want to use it.

  3. Well I never know about this printer-friendly page before. I usually copy the website content one by one. Not a smart way, right?!
