Only as a bruteforce fallback idea. But I think there needs to be an OCR in the first place :D

This idea is originally from Laxmi Narayana Kamath kamathln[at]gmail[dot]com

Using combination of Pango and OCR to convert from one encoding to other
Render nudi encoded text to png file using Pango (tell pango to use Nudi font)
Then pass the image to OCR for getting unicode text from the images
