ABBYY fine reader 9 does the job well.
We may open pdf image and perform  OCR and then save the result in any formats it offers including txt html etc.
Only thing is that fine reader is not a free software and so has to be acquired.

hello friends,
is there a software  which can convert pdf images to text? plz provide
the name, download link and some beginner's tips.
i have tried using k10/ k11  or fine reader  but these also don't
convert the pdf file which has images in it.  k10/ k11 says the file
is empty document. jaws doesn't read these images and i need a
converter   or whatever it is called.  it  should be able to change
the images stored in a pdf  file to text so that jaws can read it.
