Well... Having access to the raw text is often useful (for example, to
allow blinds to have acces to the content of pdf documents, or to search
a word in a scanned historical document), and cut and pasting text from
PDF often works, even if the “rich text” formating is lost.

In the case of the Ebola FAQs
( discussed here, it
almost worked perfectly on my computer (Ubuntu Linux 14.04) for N’Ko
(diacritics are shifted by one character) and Vai. Of course, the Adlam
was not working (somehow converted to Arabic), bus it was expected,
since Adlam is not (yet?) in Unicode.
