Textise enables you to see the current web page without ads, pictures or any other formatting.

The Textise add-on allows you to access the Textise service from the Tools menu or from the right click menu.

Textise is an Internet tool that can create a text-only version of almost any web page.

Users can configure the appearance of the text-only output by adjusting fonts and colours on the Options page. Ever wanted to read the news in pink Comic Sans on a purple background?

Well, now you can! On a more practical note, this allows the partially-sighted to adjust the output to suit their needs.

Note: The Textise add-on is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.

Main features:

  • improve accessibility for the blind and partially-sighted
  • creates pages that are better for printing when it’s just the words you are after
  • allows safe navigation to suspicious web sites
  • can make cluttered pages easier to read

What's New in This Release:
  • This is a complete reworking of the Textise Add-On for Firefox, built using the Mozilla Add-On SDK.
  • A new feature has been added due to popular demand, this being the ability to right-click on a link and choose to Textise the target page of that link. In terms of the add-on, this removes the necessity to first navigate to a page before Textising it.
  • Due to current limitations of the SDK it has not been possible to add a Textise link to the Tools menu but the add-on does now add a Textise button to the browser (it's the red "x").
  • All Textise actions are "toggles". For example, if you Textise a link on a Textised page, you'll be taken to the unTextised version of the link's target.
