If you're running J2018, have you tried its OCR feature? Or, the Recognize with Jaws option from the context menu?
Take care. Mike. Go Dodgers!

Subject: [TechTalk] OCR Solution
I need to find a way to transform image pdf files into text. These are
mostly books that have been scanned a while ago, but I haven't had the
time and patience to find a solution. Now I really need to do something
about this, for professional reasons.
I found this Windows 10 app called KNFB Reader, which seems to do
exactly that. However, since this is a rather expensive app, I'd like to
ask those who have already used it a few things if I may:
1. How does this app deal with multi-lingual documents? Is it possible
to choose two or more recognission languages for the same book? Most of
my books are manuals. I am a language teacher and it is very important
that both languages used in a book be accurately detected.
2. Is formatting being retained, at least in part?
3. Are there any alternatives to this application? It seems to be the
only accessible solution, but I might be wrong.
I would be very grateful if anyone could help me with this.
