Why doesn’t your PDF open in Adobe? Not sure if this will fix the issue, but you might give it a try.

Subject: Problem With Convenient OCR
I am trying to read a scanned PDF image document using the Jaws convenient OCR feature, but cannot get the file to convert to a readable format.
If I open the PDF file in Internet explorer, and then try convenient OCR. I’m told that OCR cannot be started.
I saved the PDf file, and then tried convenient OCR on the saved file, and got a script error message.
When I access convenient OCR, I use spacebar and Jaws, followed by O for OCR, and D for document.
I’m using Jaws 18 here with Windows 7.
I don’t recall having this problem with earlier versions of Jaws.
Am I missing something?
