        Arabic OCR in acrobat reader is useful especially when it come in translating Arabic book, magazine, documents, news paper, and school books into English or other language.

        Several of the 42 OCR enabled languages have smaller user communities than the Arabic users. I really believe there must be an intentional decision from Acrobat's management not to enable the Arabic OCR. This matter has been ongoing since 2017 (refer to the first comment in the below series) and we still receive the same cliche reply '...we will update once the team prioritize it...). I wonder what was was the basis of the 'team's' decision to prioritize and implement the Hebrew OCR which users are manifolds smaller than Arabic (based on 9 million Hebrew speakers in the world versus 420 million Arabic speakers) and left the Arabic OCR hanging and 'under review' to this date...
        Once and for all Acrobat should come out in the open and finally say it that they do not care to listen or serve the Arabic users.

        there are 250mil. Arabic users in the world and around 25mil. Hebrew users. Why can Hebrew text be OCRed on Adbobe and not Arabic. Both languages use non western alphabet letters!

        another one who didn't even bother to do a search before posting a new request. This has the same exact title as the most popular request here. It just takes a simple sorting. Jeez.
