As others have said, you have a PDF document made up of images of the form 
pages.  If you had an OCR program, you could run the PDF document through it.  
Unfortunately, if your intent is to fill out the form using JAWS and print it 
for submission, this probably wouldn't be possible since OCR doesn't always do 
a good job of preserving the formatting of a document, especially of a form.  
Your best bet would be to print the form from Adobe Reader and get sighted 
assistance to help you fill out the form.

  Hi, I'm trying to download some forms from the America's Got Talent site, and 
I know there are things written on the forms, because it'll say "processing 
page 9 of whatever", but when it's done, stupid jaws just keeps saying "alert, 
empty document." I know the damn thing isn't empty and I need these forms. Any
