Does Omeka have the capability to search OCR'd PDFs from the main search bar?

Hello all,

I apologize if this is obvious, I’m just starting to familiarize myself with the functionality of Omeka as a DAMS for my institution. I was wondering if it’s possible for Omeka’s search bar to search OCR’d PDFs that you upload? I’ve noticed that it has that function when you click on individual items and you click on the eyeglass to search within the text, but I’m wondering if anyone has created any plugins to allow the larger search bar across all of your collections to be able to pick up words within OCR’d PDFs?
Has someone discovered a plugin of some kind or a way to do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, the plugin PDF Text will make OCR’d text searchable.
