    Simply incompetence of Adobe team handling Acrobat.
    Arabic OCR means OCR for Urdu, Persian, Punjabi and so many other languages automatically.
    What should I say? It will be inappropriate.

    It's nearly two years since the first request was posted ...
    It's nine months since you promised to update us when (if?) it is prioritised ...
    It's a standard feature in Google translate ...

    So what's the story Adobe? Complacency, unwillingness or incompetence?

    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.
