[jira] Commented: (TIKA-469) The Parser is not correctly outputting Arabic text documents

Hudson (Jira)

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-469?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12995489#comment-12995489 ]

Cristian Vat commented on TIKA-469:
-----------------------------------

Possible this is a problem with the PDF or installed/available fonts?
Reasoning: Tried opening using Tika GUI app and got garbled text. Then I tried selecting all text from PDF in Adobe Reader and pasting it into Word/Notepad++. This also resulted in what looks like exactly the same garbled text.

> The parser is not preserving the character encoding when parsing documents in Arabic UTF-8, specifically with .pdf and .doc.  The resulting character output is undechipherable or just question-mark symbols.
