Retrieving Course Text from Published Files when Source File is Unavailable

Hi all,

My client is unable to locate Storyline 2.0 source files for 7 courses (yikes!). The only thing they were able to send was the zipped LMS published files.

Is there a way to retrieve the course text from any of the published files so I don't have to re-write the course?

Thank you!! ~ Karen

Not really. If your courses are published as HTML5, you will find the text in the JavaScript files that are stored in the html5/data/js folder, but it is not really in a usable format.

A better option would be to explore OCR (optical character recognition) software that can extract text from images. It won't do a perfect job, but will likely be quicker than any other option.
