I looking for advice, how to make this. I need make virtual printer, and when I will sent any text file(word, excel, pdf) to this printer, I want, that my python script can get this data and parse it to variable. Just windows platform. Any idea?
Here I have printed this web page from Edge using Windows generic text printer
It was a stock method for extracting text to use the Generic/Text Only virtual printer since the days of pre windows. The results are highly variable.
Having shown you it is possible. I will add that the results are often disappointing and frustrating to work with., for many reasons.
Thus it is better to work with a Programable (API) replacement such as one that may OCR etc.
For example try out one that formats text layout
