Feature Request - alternate PDF indexing targets

Hi, Alec,

UNB would be interested in a feature within OJS that allowed for the addition of text retrieved from a PDF via some other mechanism (OCR, transcription, etc) to be added to OJS and used by the search engine, rather than always relying on the pdftotext extraction built into OJS currently. This would give us extra flexibility.
