Convert a pdf file to html

Description

A blind user often has difficulty reading the content provided in pdf files. This tool is quite experimental at this stage.

Usage

pdf2html(pdffile, htmlfile=sub(".pdf", ".html", pdffile), HeadingLevels=4, PageTag="h6")

Arguments

pdffile

A pdf file to be converted.

htmlfile

The filename for the resulting html; default is to change the file extension.

HeadingLevels

The depth of heading level to include; tags h1, h2, h3... are used.

PageTag

Which tag to use for replacing page numbers; default is h6, but any tag could be used.

Details

A Python 2.7 module is the basis for the conversion. Some post-processing can be done to further enhance the readability of the resulting html file.

Value

Logical: Has the conversion completed. Note that this does not mean the result is totally useful as this will depend on the quality of the input file.
