How do I extract Arabic Text using Acrobat DC?

I want to extract Arabic text from a pdf. I have attempted many things with no success including exporting to word format, simple copy and paste, installing the apparent font (AXtGIHane), scanning/ocr, etc... Nothing has worked.  I downloaded the trial version of Acrobat DC, and have attempted several things with it as well (installing fonts, exporting, editing, trying to use OCR), without success.  I can see that it has many features/settings so I may be missing something. I notice that when I look for Arabic among the language list, it is not present.  I would be happy to provide a the file I'm using, or a portion of it. Although I'm working with the Macintosh version, I also have Windows 10 available, if that would help.

Thanks for your help,

-Tony

Hi Tony, We are sorry to say that, but you can't extract Arabic text using Acrobat. We don't have Arabic support yet. I am raising a feature request for you. Thanks.

Adobe doesn't pay attention to the need of Arabic users?

it's been almost 3 years now, and our company has got a big group of full ADOBE DC license. If this issue wasn't solved I wonder why?
