Is the PDF file made of images of pages? Can you select the text in the PDF and then paste it into a text document? If not then the Utility Class would have to be capable of text recognition, and this is not that kind of library. It extracts text from binary format documents, which normally a pdf contains when constructed properly, but often times they appear as text but are actually images of the text.

I have used this and it only works for some pdf's. Definitely not the ones which have images in it. And some other documents which only have text also are not read.

can't you ignore the images and extract whatever the text in it?

Good morning, with me it does not work with any of the 3 types: doc, docx and pdf. When I put the directory of the file, without pulling the variable, it also gives nonexistent file. I do not know what else to do. Can someone help me?
