How to convert SMI to TXT?
You can convert SMI to TXT with MConverter in three easy steps:
Choose SMI files from your device
At the top of this page, drag and drop your SMIs. You can also click to select SMI files using your operating system's file picker. Another method is to press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V (⌘+V on Mac) to paste an SMI file you have copied to clipboard. Converting a folder with SMI files to TXT is also supported: simply paste or drag and drop it.
Click or tap on TXT from the list of target formats
Alternatively, you can use the search field to quickly find the format you need, whether it's TXT or something else.
Download your TXT files, after MConverter has finished processing them
There's an option to automatically download the converted TXT files, so you don't have to press the download icon for each TXT. You may see a share icon as well. Use it to directly share the TXTs with other apps.
About the formats
Subtitles file formats
SAMI is short for Synchronized Accessible Media Interchange. Developed in the late 90s by Microsoft, SMI or SAMI files were an accessibility initiative by the company. Such files contain subtitles with formatting, extended from HTML. In other words, subtitle text in the SAMI format can be bolded, italicized, underlined, colored, and more. SAMI files are used along with video files as closed captions.
Document/Office file formats
TXT files are regular text files. They cannot contain formatting.
