Reading PDF Text

Read PDF documents in C# .NET Applications using the PdfDocument.ExtractAllText method in the IronPDF library.


This PDF reader & parser library is particularly good at accurately extracting text with support for whitespace, formatting and Unicode and UTF-8 character reading. It also supports opening and reading the contents of password protected PDF documents in all .NET programming languages such as VB.NET and C#. We can also use .NET to read the text content from Specific pages and also read all embedded image files as well.


IronPDF allows developers to easily extract the full text and images from almost any PDF file. This PDF OCR behavior is particularly useful when building search indexes.
