How do I Get Text Data from PDF via a Script?

I have searched and have not found a way of getting embedded text in a scanned PDF file (within a container) out of of the PDF so that I can store that text in a text field in my FMP DB and perform other functions like a Find/Search on the text content of the PDF. Is there a way to do this?


The GetContainerAttribute function appears only to provide Metadata information and not the embedded text within the Scanned PDF that has gone through an "image-to-text" or OCR conversion. I need to get at the OCR text data,
