Look into the ActionScript object TextSnapshot.
There was also an older post for doing a search and select of text with it.

I recently ran head first into some of the short-comings of FlashPaper so I started using PDF2SWF instead.

Two of the things I had to give up were the ability to cut and paste text and to search text. If I am correct (I could be wrong), PDF2SWF converts each character to curves, thus there is no "text" in the resulting SWF file.

I had read in a (really) old post that someone said that they were looking into adding the text-to-text conversion, but they needed a Actionscript coder to help out.

I am now offering that assistance.
