We Batch Html to PDF Converter is a simple yet effective text conversion tool that produces high-quality PDF documents out of any HTML file or Web site. It allows you to add both existing HTML documents and URLs to your conversion list, and creates text-searchable PDFs in a fast and efficient way. Its interface works seamlessly in both standard and touch screens.
After checking this HTML to PDF converter with various types of HTML-based documents, its two main assets became clearly evident to me: the simplicity of use and the high quality of the resulting PDFs. The former is based on a clean and intuitive interface, which – though, it could benefit from a slightly more colorful design – supports conversion lists, allows you to add both URLs and HTML documents, provides oversized and self-explanatory icons, and replicates the widely-known ribbon design present in most MS Office tools. Besides, if you happen to have a touch screen, all you need to do to move around its interface with your fingertips is to switch to Touch Mode.
The latter asset is the look and feel of the resulting PDF files. The layout of the original Web site or HTML file is faithfully preserved, and – when required – the information is elegantly re-located to fit the page dimensions in the PDF. The text remains as text, which means that the PDF pages are not just a nice collection of images, but a fully searchable document that you can easily tag and enhance with all the accessibility features provided. Bookmarks are created automatically by the program during the conversion process. These are hierarchically organized, though their quality and usefulness will largely depend on how the original HTML file has been tagged. To these source limitations, you will have to add PDF’s own limitations – column text is always a challenge, not only when it comes to the hierarchical organizations of bookmarks and tags, but also when having your text read out loud using synthetic speech.
In a nutshell, it is fair to say that We Html to PDF Converter is just as good, and therefore just as bad, as any professional, official Adobe conversion tool. Surely, it is not as pricey, and its batch conversion capabilities (of any mixture of online and offline HTML-based documents) are also worth considering.
