I am attempting to use the Make Accessible wizard in Adobe DC to re-mediate image-based PDFs into machine readable files. I can run the wizard, and it tells me that is has enhanced all the scanned pages and performed the OCR. I can highlight now an each word, line or paragraph which is what I expect to see.
When I enable Adobe Read Aloud, all the pages come back as blank. So just to be sure it wasn't the reader, I opened the document in Adobe reader with JAWS running, and even JAWS reports all pages as being blank.
I then tried going back to the original image only version of the file, and instead of running the wizard, I ran the elements found under Enhance Scans to OCR the document. I am getting the same "blank" result from that as well. I can however still highlight the individual words so again the OCR did work.....
Has anyone else run across this? Is there a work around?
Has the text that has been created by the OCR process been tagged? What content do you see inside the tags (if any) in the Tags panel? What do you get when you save the PDF as an accessible text file?
