Not like they used to be. With JAWS OCR you can have JAWS display any text in the viewer and then copy the text to any word processor for editing. So while you won’t know the image you can get the text.

Are image PDFs the ones that are still not accessible to screen readers?

And as a follow-on to this observation, and tying it in with the topic about OCR and JPG [which applies equally to image PDFs], you can use this as a way to determine if a file is an image PDF versus one that was created as a text PDF. You won't be able to edit image PDFs and you'll find that they show up as a sequence of multiple pictures in the converted result (typically without any alternate text as this was not supported way back when, and many of these were scanned years ago, and it's still not a part of image scanned PDFs most of the time even now).

Explanations exist; they have existed for all time; there is always a well-known solution to every human problem — neat, plausible, and wrong.
