Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-714) Word art isn't extracted for various doc types
Date Sun, 06 Nov 2011 11:12:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-714?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13144979#comment-13144979

Michael McCandless commented on TIKA-714:

OK I dug into this one a bit.

First off, for doc/docx/pdf, I don't think there's any text to extract
because there is just an embedded (PNG) image; I cannot copy/paste
from the viewers.

PPTX already works correctly.

PPT works, but on scrutinizing the output from POI's
SlideShowRecordDumper, I don't see any record that contains this text,
and when I extract the PNG, it doesn't contain the text as embedded
metadata either.

I do see numerous embedded UnknownRecordPlaceholder records with type
1054, that seem to contain embedded Office XML data.  So, I'm strongly
suspecting that the reason why I can copy/paste out of the PPT file is
only because I'm running Office 2007.  Ie, I think that if I opened
this with older Office that I would not be able to copy/paste text
out (but, I can't verify for certain -- does anyone have an Office
2003 or older installation...?) 

So net/net I think this is already working as best it can (we get the
text from PPTX).  I'll commit the PPTX test case and mark this
