Searching specific word to PDF using OCR

Hi Everyone,

I would like to ask if it is possible to ask the User to input a word and search that work into an electronic book (PDF)?

Upon trying, i can scrape out all the text from that ebook.

So the question is can i search text from that electronic book?

Regards,
Paula

Hi sir Patty,

For example this pdf,

you’re going to seach the word THE WIND AND THE SUN then if it exists it will direct you to that page.
