Text extraction tools are essential for obtaining the textual content and metadata of computer files for use in a wide variety of applications, including search and natural language processing tools. Techniques and tools for evaluating text extraction tools are missing from academia and industry.

Apache Tika™ detects file types and extracts metadata and text from many file types. Tika is a crucial component in a wide variety of tools, including Solr™, Nutch™, Alfresco, Elasticsearch and Sleuth Kit®/Autopsy®.
