Word to Base64
Output: Base64 Encoded Text
What is Base64?
Base64 is a binary-to-text encoding system that uses a set of 64 distinct ASCII characters to transfer binary data into a text-based format. It is often used to encode binary data, such as images or files.
What is Base64 Encoding?
Encoding, in general, refers to the process of converting data from one format to another.
Base64 encoding is achieved by representing binary data with a set of 64 different ASCII characters. This encoding is particularly useful when data needs to be exchanged between systems that do not natively support binary data.
What is the DOC or DOCX File Extension?
The .doc and .docx are file extensions used by Microsoft Word. The .doc format was used by Microsoft Word versions from 97 to 2003 and is a binary file format. The .docx format, introduced with Microsoft Word 2007, is based on XML and allows for smaller file sizes, better-looking compressed images, and less chance of files getting corrupted.

Uppercase letters (A-Z), lowercase letters (a-z), digits (0-9), and two additional characters, typically “+” and “/”, comprise the set of 64 ASCII characters used in Base64 encoding. When the length of the binary data is not a multiple of three bytes, the “=” character is also used for padding.
