Try using Jaws Convenient OCR since it clearly is an image file of the text.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I assume Jaws OCR can run on Windows 7, but you'll have to try it to find out.
What I would do is point to the file in File Explorer/Windows Explorer, bring up the context menu with Shift+f10 and select
Convenient OCR With Jaws.
See what happens.
You should end up in a text view of the document and you can copy it to a word processor and save it.

Subject: JAWS will not read a PDF book!
Hoping someone can help with this. I have the latest version of JAWS
2021 and am using Windows 7. I can open other PDF files on my computer...no problem. I downloaded a PDF book this morning and JAWS says "empty page." I had my wife look at the document. It is 537 pages and she can read it fine.
I have tried changing it to a text file...no dice. Everything I have tried has failed...any suggestions? Thanks!
