Binary to ASCII Conversion

Binary to ASCII Converter

About This Converter

Converting binary to ASCII involves translating binary code, which is a series of 1s and 0s, into human-readable ASCII characters. ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is a character encoding standard that assigns a unique numerical value to each character, including letters, numbers, and various symbols.

Here's a step-by-step explanation of how the conversion works:

  1. Understand Binary Representation: Binary is a base-2 numeral system, meaning it uses only two digits: 0 and 1. Each digit in a binary number is called a bit. For example, the binary number "1101" represents (1 * 2^3) + (1 * 2^2) + (0 * 2^1) + (1 * 2^0) = 8 + 4 + 0 + 1 = 13 in decimal.
  2. Group Binary Digits: ASCII characters are typically represented using 8 bits (1 byte). So, you need to group the binary digits into sets of 8.
  3. Convert Binary to Decimal: For each group of 8 bits, convert the binary representation to its decimal equivalent. This is done by assigning weights to each bit and adding them up. For example, the binary number "11011011" would be converted to decimal as (1 * 2^7) + (1 * 2^6) + (0 * 2^5) + (1 * 2^4) + (1 * 2^3) + (0 * 2^2) + (1 * 2^1) + (1 * 2^0) = 219.
  4. Map to ASCII: Once you have the decimal equivalent, find the corresponding ASCII character using the ASCII table. For example, if the decimal value is 65, then the corresponding ASCII character is 'A'.
  5. Repeat: Repeat the process for each group of 8 bits in the binary sequence.

Here's a simple example:

Binary: 01001000 01100101 01101100 01101100 01101111

  1. Group into sets of 8 bits: 01001000, 01100101, 01101100, 01101100, 01101111
  2. Convert to decimal: 72, 101, 108, 108, 111
  3. Map to ASCII: 'H', 'e', 'l', 'l', 'o'

So, the binary sequence "01001000 01100101 01101100 01101100 01101111" is equivalent to the ASCII string "Hello".

How To Use This Converter?

  1. You will see a simple form with an input field for entering binary digits, a "Convert" button, and an output area.
  2. Enter a sequence of binary digits (0s and 1s) in the input field.
  3. Click the "Convert" button.
  4. The tool will convert the binary input to ASCII and display the result in the output area.

Note: Ensure that you enter valid binary digits (8 bits at a time) in the input field for accurate conversion. If the input is not a valid binary sequence, the conversion result may not be meaningful.

How This Converter Function ?

  1. HTML Structure:
    • The HTML structure defines a simple form with an input field for binary input, a "Convert" button, and a div to display the output.
    • CSS styles are applied to make the form responsive and visually appealing.
  2. JavaScript Function:
    • The convertBinaryToASCII function is defined in the <script> section.
    • This function is triggered when the "Convert" button is clicked.
  3. User Input:
    • The user enters a sequence of binary digits into the input field (e.g., 01001000 01000101 01001100 01001100 01001111).
  4. Binary to ASCII Conversion:
    • The convertBinaryToASCII function reads the binary input from the input field.
    • It processes the binary digits in chunks of 8 (1 byte) because each ASCII character is represented by 8 bits.
    • For each 8-bit chunk, it converts the binary value to its decimal equivalent using parseInt(byte, 2).
    • The decimal value is then converted to its corresponding ASCII character using String.fromCharCode(decimalValue).
  5. Output Display:
    • The resulting ASCII characters are concatenated to form a string.
    • The final ASCII string is displayed in the output div (<div id="output"></div>).
  6. Example:
    • For input 01001000 01000101 01001100 01001100 01001111, the corresponding ASCII characters are 'H', 'E', 'L', 'L', 'O'.
    • The output will be displayed as "ASCII: Hello" in the output div.
  7. Repeat:
    • Users can enter different binary sequences, click the "Convert" button, and the tool will convert and display the corresponding ASCII text.

How To Implement

Implementing this Confidence Interval Calculator on WordPress involves a few steps. Here's a step-by-step guide:

1. Access WordPress Admin Dashboard

Log in to your WordPress admin dashboard.

2. Create a New Page

Navigate to Pages > Add New in the WordPress admin.

Give your page a title, such as "Confidence Interval Calculator."

3. Switch to HTML Editor

On the page editor, switch to the HTML editor. Look for a tab that says "HTML" or "Code."

4. Copy HTML Code

Copy the entire HTML code (from <!DOCTYPE html> to the closing </html>) from your index.html file.

5. Paste HTML Code

Paste the copied HTML code into the HTML editor of your WordPress page.

6. Add CSS

Copy the entire CSS code (from the <style> tag in the styles.css file) and paste it into the WordPress page's HTML editor, preferably within the <head> section.

7. Add JavaScript

Copy the entire JavaScript code (from the <script> tag in the script.js file) and paste it into the WordPress page's HTML editor, preferably just before the closing </body> tag.

8. Save and Publish

Save the changes to your WordPress page.

Click the "Publish" button to make the page live.

9. View Your Page

Visit the page on your WordPress site to see the Confidence Interval Calculator in action.

Additional Considerations:

  • WordPress Theme Compatibility: Ensure that your WordPress theme supports the custom styles and scripts you've added. If needed, you may have to adjust styles to fit seamlessly with your theme.
  • Plugin Usage: If you find that directly pasting HTML, CSS, and JavaScript into the page editor is causing issues, consider using a plugin like "Insert Headers and Footers" to add your custom code.
  • Responsive Design: Check if the calculator layout is responsive. If not, you might need to make adjustments to the CSS for better responsiveness.
  • Debugging: If something doesn't work as expected, use the browser's developer tools (usually accessible by right-clicking on the page and selecting "Inspect" or "Inspect Element") to check for errors in the console tab.

By following these steps, you should be able to implement the Confidence Interval Calculator on your WordPress site. Remember to test the calculator thoroughly to ensure it functions correctly within the WordPress environment.


  1. What is Binary to ASCII conversion?
    • Binary to ASCII conversion is the process of translating binary code, composed of 0s and 1s, into human-readable ASCII characters.
