Following up with Naftali's comment, there is also a way to convert a PDF to an image file in MATLAB. See: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/709623-how-can-i-convert-a-scanned-pdf-to-an-image-using-matlab

Just for the record, Text Analytics Toolbox (new in R2017b) includes a function extractFileText that will extract text data from PDF (or MS Word) files.
