I think some clarification is needed here. Jaws 2018 can perform OCR on a paper document from either a PURL camera or a flatbed scanner (I have & use both). The Insert+space bar+a will bring up the selection list to select the device to obtain the document from and will then OCR the resulting document. This works quite well and is very handy.
You can purchase the Purl camera for $295.00 and then you can do what you want. I don't think a flat bed scanner would work but it might be possible.
