Search functionality does not search shortcodes

My site is heavily using shortcodes, which load texts from the child theme. I noticed ALL pages which use such shortcodes are not properly searchable.

Imagine you have a shortcode which is loading a text file which contains the word "dog". If you now search for "dog", the WordPress file containing this word is not found. I think this is a big problem as search on a website is increasingly important in a world where users do not have time to browse through pages.

Please make the contents of shortcodes appear in the search.
