A probable cause of this problem is that the document was originally poorly tagged, since at least some pages needed to be OCR-ed. After those pages are OCR-ed, the tag structure is not automatically updated. So I would suggest the following:
1. Open the document after all pages have been OCR-ed in Acrobat Pro.
2. Select View -> Navigation Panels -> Tags.
3. Right click (shift F10) in the root tag of the structure tree.
4. Choose Delete Tag.
5. Re-tag the entire document by choosing Advanced -> Accessibility -> Add Tags to Document.
6. Save and Read Out Loud.
I tried this and I still have the same problem. The first half of the document will read but the other half just says "blank." Is there something else I can try?
Are you able to copy and paste text from one of the problem pages?
Yes I can.
Ok, sorry, that's me out of ideas.
If you have Acrobat Pro, you can troubleshoot by using Touch Up Reading Order on the Advanced > Accessibility menu. If you go to one of the errant pages, is there something suspicious looking such as the entire page being marked "Figure" or having no highlighted regions (implying no text). You can select a rectangular region and click "Text" to mark it is text. If the problem is tagging, that may correct it.
The other possible problem is that there is a different or bad font used. Since you mention that other screen readers can read the text, it doesn't sound like that.
