Ability to Search PDF Text?

Can PDFs stored on jAlbum be searched for text? We have several hundred PDF newsletters that have searchable text. Looking for a product that provides a public portal for users to search them by title (issue) or for the content--without them having to login.
Our primary interest in the product is to store images, but we also have a need for users to search PDF files.

A few jAlbum skins include a search capability, but it's restricted to basic file information - file name, some file metadata, e.g. - and to information you enter - titles, comments. But PDF text isn't accessible for searching.

The key is that the albums produced by jAlbum are purely client-side. There is no server-side processing involved. So, searching can be done only in the browser, using JSON files. Those files don't include PDF text.
