If you are using JAWS 13 you can use the built in OCR. It is only temporary, though, and is made for reading a single page at a time on the fly. If you want to OCR it and save the OCR document you will have to use something like Open Book.

I'm not sure if this will work but you can try; people have sent me images of pages with which they needed help. I think they were jpegs, which may be what you have. I highlighted the text and copied it to a new Word file and made changes on that.It was so long ago I'm not sure that that' what I did, i.e., if the jpeg was copyable.email a page to me as an attachment and I'll try see if it works.

It's one thing to be melancholy and one thing to be sophisticated, but when you get the two of them together in a way people can relate to, then I think you're on to something.
