A simple online tool that replace the special characters by characters supported by txt reader for mobile devices like calculators, mp4 players, mobile phones, etc...

Like:
ã -> a
é -> e

The initial version V1 is released some months ago, in a discussion about txt readers with xtrm0.

Now i updated it!

New features in V2:
-Now your can upload your *.txt files instead of writing text in the page.
-More special special characters support (portuguese, french, spanish, german, italian...).
-The tool count the number of converted files.

You can use it at:

Very nice.

Do you have a way to copy/paste text into it also?

And another thing: You may want to style the choose button with CSS to match the Upload button. ;)

Will that change an e with an accent to an e without one? or will it give me hex or something?

EDIT

This is what happens:

flyingfisch@flyingfisch-Office-Computer:~/Desktop/Shortcuts/Shortcuts/ebooks/pimpernel$ iconv -f UTF-8 -t CP1252 repay.txt
iconv: illegal input sequence at position 0
