Clear text

You can transform all the ASCII characters to text without any table for conversion. Sometimes it can be difficult to convert them manually because if the characters sets are large, then it would take a lot of time to turn ASCII to text. Therefore, our ASCII to text converter online can do the job for you in a couple of seconds.

You just need to follow the way given below to turn ASCII to text effortlessly:

  • After checking of ASCII to Text converter from the drop down, you will find two windows. In the first window, you will be able to write all the ASCII codes from the file saved on your computer or copy/paste them in this section for conversion.
  • If you can’t write the codes because the file is large, then you can hit the “Choose From” option and double click the file from your computer, and it will be uploaded automatically. When you are done with the uploading part, just press the “Convert” button, and the ASCII will be turned to text in the window next to it.

You can now convert any text or character to ASCII format without memorizing or referring to the conversion table. It is difficult to remember all the numbers assigned to 128 characters like for capital B the assigned number is 066, and so on. Now, you can simply add text to our transformer and let it turn it to ASCII for you.

All the applications we use that deal with text are using ASCII numbers to represent them and as computers only take input data as numbers so ASCII is the best representation for these characters that a computer can interpret.

ASCII also includes text that is known as control characters which are used to alter the appearance of text. There are a total of 128 characters, and they are assigned numbers starting from 0-127 each character occupies seven bits which is one bit less than a byte.

ASCII stands for (American Standard Code for Information Interchange), it is basically a file that contains all the characters with assigned codes, but as there aren’t embedded control characters, you can make modifications with a text editor. As all computers use this format, it is easy to share files with other networks as well.

All the files which are documented or contain source codes like for example used for programming are stored as the ASCII text. Other data like executable, graphical, etc. contain stuff that is not viewed or saved in this format because it was only developed for characters that you can write.

A while back FTP (File Transfer Protocol) required preparation for a client to transfer binary files such as setting a command known as SET BINARY, but ASCII files can be transferred without any special conditions. The currently used file transfer protocol transfers both the data (ASCII & Binary) in the exact and correct manner automatically.

All the keyboard keys are mapped to ASCII values, and the characters can also be viewed as hex values. As the American standard code for information interchange character set limit is 128, it is enough to represent all the needed values, like alphabets, numbers, and control characters. The only problem is some characters are not included in the 128 character sets like the UK pound sign and more.

This is the very reason to why we have to go for the eight-bit extended ASCII character sets. The values in this set continue from 128, all the way to 256 but their every character requires 8 bits, means one byte in total.

Today, still the extended ASCII is not supported by all the networking channels, and most of the communication channels eradicate the eighth bit from these characters. Another disadvantage is the appearance of the text, which cannot be altered or formatted according to how you desire if you save the file as an ASCII document. However, ASCII is essential as it is required to represent any data that is in the text format, and all the computers can display them without any additional conditions.
