  • "The text message is a picture in the pdf file" - do you mean that the text message says something like "a boat" and the tool has to search the PDF for a picture of a boat? – Mawg says reinstate Monica Nov 16 '18 at 10:34

No need for machine learning, unless the pdf file is a scanned or drawn document.

If you install the python pdfminer six library you can simply run the pdf through the tool to convert it to text and then search the text for the phrase. Note that scanned/drawn documents may contain no text or garbled text without using OCR, (optical character recognition).
