    in Searchable PDFs ... Arabic Text is REVERSED ...

    To reconstruct the issue or BUG ...

    Download Google's Tesseract-OCR

    run Tesseract-OCR to generate a searchable PDF from an image that has some Arabic Text with

    the following command line:

    c:\test> tesseract TEST.JPG Test -l ara+eng PDF

    Open the output file TEST.PDF in the following programs:

    Adobe Reader - Internet Explorer - Microsoft Edge Browser and Google Chrome
    and see the behavior for highlighting text , or copying text or saving as text !!!!

    Google's Chrome correctly handles the file

    I wonder how on earth Adobe fails in handling their own products !!!!

    not to say the least for Microsoft .. which poorly handles the file in their browsers as well as in SharePoint Indexing !!!
